About Fabrizio S.

Fabrizio S. was born on May 25, 1990 in Catania, Italy. His interest in music began at a young age, when his father would play him his favorite records. At 14 years old, Fabrizio started playing electric bass, studying with a local teacher in his hometown.
After graduating high school, he began his law studies at Catania University only to realize within the year that his true passion was music. He promptly applied to Berklee College of Music in 2011 and was accepted with a scholarship.
During his four years at Berklee, Fabrizio studied with renowned professors: John Patitucci, Danilo Perez, and Victor Bailey. While there, he performed with a variety of ensembles in many venues of Boston, such as Wally's (famous jazz club where many jazz icons like Charlie Parker performed).
Upon completing his undergrad degree in Electric and Double Bass Performance in 2015, Fabrizio moved to New York. He began studying with bass legend Ron Carter while earning a Master’s Degree in Performance and Composition from the prestigious Manhattan School of Music in 2018.
Since moving to New York, Fabrizio has collaborated and shared the stage with some of the best musicians on the scene including Harry Allen, Billy Drummond and Joe Magnarelli. He has also performed in many well-known jazz clubs in the City like Fat Cat, Mezzrow, Shapeshifter, and Minton's.
In June 2019, Fabrizio was awarded the Welcome Back Tony Scott award, a prestigious recognition given to talented musicians by the city of Salemi, Italy, to honor the memory of the great clarinet player Tony Scott. During the same time, he performed with the Edo Ferragamo Project at the GruVillage Festival (Grugliasco, Italy) and Valmontone Summer Festival (Valmontone, Italy), opening for the Italian dates of Anastacia's summer tour.
Currently, Fabrizio continues to learn from his mentor, Ron Carter. He has also released his debut record Gettin' It There with Billy Drummond on drums, Donald Vega on piano, and Jed Levy on saxophone. With all these accomplishments and tireless nature, Fabrizio S. is determined to make himself a fixture of the international jazz community.

I enjoyed taking lessons with him. Very passionate about the bass and very in tune with the student's needs. Only reason I didn't give him 5 stars was because of his location, very difficult to get from Flushing to Harlem.
