Alessandro Dri on SoundBetter

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. I have been teaching drums for more than twenty years and have been collaborating with various artists and bands in my career. Live and in the studio I am comfortable with Blues, Pop, Rock, Reggae, Funk and Electro (play acoustically). I can provide professional drum tracks recorded in my personal studio or expand recording possibilities by collaborating with partner recording studios. In addition to the recording, I can provide the arrangement of the parts themselves and put my creativity at your service.
