Writing and recording drum parts is a work of creativity, concentration and sound, and I love it!

My name is Alessandro Dri, and I am a drummer and drum teacher with over twenty years of experience. Throughout my career, I have collaborated with various artists and bands, both in live performances and studio recordings. I am proficient in a wide range of genres, including Blues, Pop, Rock, Reggae, Funk, and Electro.
At my studio, I am dedicated to music production, recording sessions, and composition. I possess the necessary skills and expertise to deliver high-quality drum tracks for your projects. Whether you require drums for a specific song or need assistance with arrangement and creative input, I am here to provide my services.
Furthermore, I am actively involved in the creation of Drumless Playalong Loops. These loops are designed to facilitate drum practice and are suitable for both learners and experienced drummers. I share my original compositions on various digital platforms and offer exclusive content to my Patreon supporters.
If you are in need of professional drum tracks, whether for a studio recording or a live performance, I am more than happy to collaborate and provide my skills. You can trust me to deliver the desired results and put my creativity at your service.
