Paolo is the founder of Orlando Drum Camp and is currently very active in the music industry. He taught and composed for the Colonial High School marching band for 6 years, during which the band received the highest rating of Superior every year. Currently, he still teaches a handful of students and is the director of the Avalon School of Music, the largest music school for private lessons in all of Central Florida. After graduating UCF (magna cum laude),Paolo continues to perform at least 2-3 times every week in addition to teaching, directing, and composing. He describes his reason for creating Orlando Drum Camp by saying, 'I want kids to have the opportunity to do something over the summer that is productive and helps them grow, while at the same time is a lot of fun!' Besides his passion for music, Paolo likes to entertain children by juggling and doing magic tricks.
Some of Paolo's performance and teaching highlights include playing for the Flying Horse Big Band, Space Coast Jazz Orchestra, Brown Bag Brass Band, playing for a special holiday performance at Disney's Epcot from international pop star Becky G, directing and composing the piece 'Party Stools' (an Orlando Drum Camp original) for a group of students who won in a talent show, helping several students successfully audition for all county bands at the middle school and high school level here in Florida, and teaching music at Loving Earth daycare.
