Claudio Mastracci after nearly twenty years of activity, held in recording studios and touring with various artists, moved to the United States in late 1987, where he studied and graduated from the Drummers Collective in New York City.

After attending the Collective, he began in ’91 to work with DCI Music Videos as a consultant and translator of some of the most important instructional videos for drums, bass, and guitar.

From early 1996 he joined the Drummers Collective teaching team, also providing his collaboration to the newest addition to the New York school’s divisions: the Bass Collective.
