Rick Hughes is a professional drummer, percussionist and teacher with over 25 years of experience.

Since beginning to play professionally, he has performed with various artists and bands throughout Europe, the USA and Brazil and boasting venues such as Wembley Arena, TFI Friday Studios, Winter Gardens, Old Trafford Football Club to name a few.

One of his career highlights was recording in Sun Studios with Elvis Presley’s guitarist, Scotty Moore. This led to a tour of Europe with the legendary ‘Muscle Shoals Band’.

Rick is currently involved in many projects, one of which is playing with the ‘The Deadbeats’ – a prolific working UK based party band.

As an experienced drum tutor, Rick has worked at music services and schools across the North West and has successfully built up a private drum school affectionately known as ‘The Drum Room’.

My Vision

My vision is to teach everything a student will need to be a modern drummer. From my years of experience in teaching and performing, I will set everyone who enters The Drum Room on a journey to successfully learn this amazing musical instrument. Most of all I guarantee every student will have a lot of fun in every lesson they step into.
Yamaha Music Points and Music Schools have been successfully delivering and developing a high standard of teaching across the UK for over 45 years. Finely tuned resources and teaching methods allow the enjoyment and high achieving outcomes to go hand in hand. At The Drum Room, every lesson is prepared and intricately planned in advance for each student’s development whilst integrating the studio’s fully “decked out” Yamaha equipment.
