James Laughlin, a World Champion Snare Drummer and highly respected professional drumming teacher, has composed an eBook of pipe band snare drum scores, with accompanying audio tracks, for 50+ of the most popular Grade 1 & 2 Pipe Band drum settings.

James receives many requests for drum scores that will accompany some of the most famous bagpipe tunes played by the majority of pipe bands. James wanted to help by providing a large library of drum scores for Pipe Band drumscores.

James has a creative and musical approach to composing drum scores, his ensemble knowledge was greatly influenced by his years in the SFU Pipe Band (under J. Reid Maxwell) along with an exciting Irish twist from his days growing up in Northern Ireland amongst great players and tutors such as Andrew Scullion, Bobby Rea, Gary Moore and David Rea.
