He’s also an incredibly talented drummer, which in itself is really inspirational.” - Ste Bailey

"Ryan has been teaching my 14 yr old Son Evin drumming, for the last 2.5 years+. Since we moved back to Lancashire from Lincolnshire. 
He was weekly lessons, which he enjoys emensly. 
We can't recommend Ryan enough, he is passionate about his teaching/drumming, which then in turn comes across to enlighten & encourage his students. 
Ryan has always worked well with us as a family, he is more than accomodating, if we have a problem & need to change a lesson, to fit in with home life etc." 
10/10 Thank You Ryan

"If you are serious about mastering the Drums as a chosen instrument, then I would highly recommend Ryan as a tutor. He is a professional and friendly tutor, that has helped both my children through their rock school drum exams and has helped them develop the necessary skills to be successful; not just in an examination setting but as developing musicians." A+++++++++++

"Ryan has been a brilliant teacher for my daughter, Aimee, for about the last 6 years and has taken her through her Rock School grades up to grade 7 and now beyond. He has a really calm and patient approach, and is a very skilled teacher in the way he structures the learning and guides her to develop her skills. He’s also an incredibly talented drummer, which in itself is really inspirational. I’d recommend him to anyone interested in learning drums, no matter their age or level of ability."

"Ryan Proud is an excellent teacher, so good with our son who is learning the drums. He’s been teaching him for a number of years and constantly motivates him to want to learn more. Our son says ‘Ryan’s the best teacher, I love drumming, can’t wait to do my next grade!’ We would highly recommend"


Alison Ashcroft

"Our son attends drum lessons with Ryan- Ryan motivates him, encourages him and has been particularly brilliant for him during this difficult time of lockdown. We are delighted with the lessons and Jonah comes home saying he really enjoys them. An excellent music school with a brilliant ethos and we feel very happy our children can be part of it."

"Ryan has been teaching my teenage son for just over a year, and the improvement is unbelievable. Keeping teenagers engaged isn't always the easiest, but Ryan has managed to do this by tailoring the lessons to learn songs that my son knows and likes. Communication has also been great throughout these unprecedented times, with regular updates and the flexibility and foresight to utilise new ways of teaching by video call during the first lockdown."
