Alex Bonacci began playing drums at the age of seven.
He attended a Berklee College course where he had the pleasure to study with Ron Savage, Ken Cervenka and Matthew Nicholl and meet many great artists of all over the world.
He attended several master-classes and studied with different great musicians, such as: Jeff Berlin, Omar Hakim, Peter Erskine, Chris Coleman, Dave Weckl, JoJo Mayer, Pat Martino, Maurizio Dei Lazzaretti, Horacio "El Negro" Hernandez, Aaron Spears, Steve Smith, Dennis Chambers, Furio Chirico, Miroslav Vitous, Kiko Loureiro, Daryl Lowery, Larry Monroe, etc.
In 2005 he became the official drummer of the band called 'Vincent' and won the Sanremo Rock Festival with them during the same year. Attending this event he had the chance to play on the same stage on which many famous musicians were playing (i.e. Ian Paice - Deep Purple's drummer).
He took part in many radio and television programs (RaiDue, RadioDue, Sky, etc.) and in many important music contests with different artists (Heineken Jammin Festival, International Pop Overthrow, Coca Cola contest, Sanremo Rock, Premio Musicultura, Rock Targato Italia, etc.).

Those are some of the great musicians, sound engineers and producers whom Alex Bonacci has worked with.
In 2011 he began to teach drum for the italian national school "La casa del batterista" in Turin, at the Bioritmo Studio, and now he is director of the branches of Turin of "La casa del batterista" and "La casa del chitarrista" and he is endorser of the italian brand UFIP - Earcreated cymbals.
Now he is also the headteacher of the music school "PERFORM School of music" and "RSL Awards" centre examination manager.
"PERFORM School of music" is also partner of the MLC Academy of Nottingham and of the i.c.m.p. - The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance of London.
Art educationIn addition to artistic activity, for many years now I have been alongside teaching, which has allowed me to obtain other great satisfactions.
I am in fact director of the "Perform School of music" training center and a qualified teacher of the national school "La casa del batterista".
International training mindset
The educational offer related to the courses at the "Perform School of music" is very wide and covers both the study of instruments such as drums, bass, guitar, piano, keyboards, singing but also complementary courses such as ensemble music, Music Production and Music Theory.
The teachers of our school are all internationally qualified and our foreign collaborators also actively participate during the training course offered.
Pupils can meet them directly on site or, optionally, in England during the periods of cultural exchange that take place during the year.

RSL Awards examination center
PERFORM School of music is also a official exam center for the RSL Awards.
The Music Learning Collective supports creative and professional growth to allow each student to achieve their goals.
Thanks to the network of music training centers (of which the main offices are Nottingham, Turin and Marseille), it creates a path aimed at higher education and the development of job opportunities.
