Audio reactive type to non lyric music track

If this question has been asked before please point me to that post!

I have been using AE CS6 for a year so very new to it all.
I have been asked to animate a pitch with quite a few lines of copy.
The client would like the sentences to write on like a typewriter writing sentences on screen synced up to the beats in a a dance track. The reference was the Google Pixel phone advert where the text moves nicely about.

I know Ae has a typewriter effect which can animate by words or lines. Could I use this effect and use an expression to sync the words on screen?

I have to try animate several sentences sequentially and time it to the audio beats.
If it was one sentence I could go in and time it frame by frame but thought maybe using expressions
Could be better for large amount of text?

I have also looked into audio beats assistant and type monkey scripts/plug ins.
Not sure how to tackle the problem. Or what approach to take.

I didn't know about this at all, thanks for the tip.
I ended up using beats assistant and timing everything patiently according to the different beats. It took 1 and a half days!
