Alive Drumming is dedicated to bringing the very best rhythmic backing to the world, in it’s most convenient and inspiring form.  We strive to cover rhythms for all genres of popular music, from jazz, country, folk, latin, rock, pop and eventually including everything else.   We aim to serve every continent, nation, and culture.   If your style of music isn’t represented, and you’d like it to be and you play the drums or percussion, please reach out to us at    

On Song Form -   For rhythmic backing, we consider a song’s musical “form” to be simply the sequence of sections that are performed, each identified by its length in bars and whether or not it’s a ‘bridge’.   Don’t be concerned if that appears complicated.   It isn’t;  you will get the idea very quickly.
