Hi my name is Lloyd Ryan and I am a Professional Drummer & Educator. If you're looking for a Drum Teacher I could be the man you're looking for. I have taught students of all ages and all abilities, from people that have never touched a drum kit in their lives but fancy giving it a go, to full time professionals (you're never too young or too old to start learning)...
Some of my more famous students have included:
- (I was) Phill Collins First Drum Teacher
- Other Big Name Students Include:
- Graham Broad (Roger Walters & Tina Turner/Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings & The Drummer On The East Enders Theme Tune)
- Skip Allen (The Pretty Things)
- John Coghlan (Status Quo)
- Derick McKenzie (Jamiroquai)
- Nick Simms (Corner Shop No.1 with Brimful of Asha)
- Tim Burgess (T'Pau)
- Ralph Salmins (Robbie Williams, Van Morrison, Bjork, Spice Girls and many more).
- Keef Hartley Started his career as the replacement for Ringo Starr as a drummer for Rory Storm and the Hurricanes. And then Later formed his own bands: The Keef Hartley Band and the Keef Hartley Little Big Band and played at Woodstock.
If you think that you would like to contact me for either Drum Lessons or as a Working Drummer who could bring something different to your Band, Recording Session or Project this a short list of some of the credits I have been lucky enough to gain throughout my career. It reads a bit like a who's who of the music business and it's something I'm very proud of. Artistes include:
- Gene Vincent
- P J Proby
- Brotherhood Of Man (Eurovision Song Contest Winners)
- The Nolan Sisters
- Cilla Black
- Matt Munro
- Tony Christie
- Peters & Lee
- Kenny Lynch
- The Ken Mackintosh Orchestra
- Edmundo Ross Latin American Band Bob Miller & The Miller Men
- Vince Dunn Orchestra (I Am The Guest Drummer On There New Album: It Is What It Is)
- Plus Over 100 Other Acts That I Have Played For, Far Too Many To Mention On My Website...
All these Artistes were at one time or another No.1 in the charts selling millions of records.
More recently I was the featured drummer on the Apple Pay TV advert (2 years ago) Which happened to be one of the first TV adverts to feature a drummer. As a result of this I began Working with Pop Up Music where I have recorded over 30 Drum Tracks. Pop Up have had recent success with Quentin Tarantino's Latest Movie: Once Upon A Time In Hollywood amongst other things.
