Band to Join.



Welcome! Thanks for coming by – My name is Lloyd Ryan and I am The Surrey Drum Teacher, I have been a professional drummer all my working life and have played and recorded with a lot of the major stars. I have also spent a large part of my career teaching people to play the drums and in total my students have recorded 33 Top UK singles and 32 Top UK albums,

He is best known for his work as a session musician and for having taught Phil Collins, one of the world's most famous drummers and best-selling music artists. Collins has credited Ryan with teaching him the basic drum rudiments.

Active since the 1960s, he has worked with Tony Christie, Matt Monro, Brotherhood of Man, The New Seekers, Tommy Cooper Bobby Davro, Gene Vincent and P.J. Proby. Ryan has also led his own big band since the 1980s and released his first big band album in 2012.
