Rudiments Rewired™ - to put it simply - is a drumming course that feels like 1 on 1 tutoring.

Back in 2002, when I first started as a drumming tutor I got such satisfaction…

Seeing drummers rise up from their current level and tapping into their REAL potential is why I love it SO much.

Tutoring 1 on 1, however, has a limit...There are only so many students that can be tutored in one day!

And due to high demand, I was unable to help drummers who really needed me most.

Which inspired me to create and send out content-based programs that included audio and workbooks...

I was able to help significantly more drummers execute their rudiments and rise their technique to a level they were satisfied with.

The feedback was incredible but I found myself living inside my inbox and emails...

Answering as many questions as I could because with the drummers learning so much, it followed with a lot of questions...

But I could never answer every one, or at least to my full potential. That would take HOURS!

This got me thinking…..

What could I create that goes way beyond the surface level of rudiment and technique work, yet create the feeling of 1 on 1 tutoring WITHOUT the expensive cost?

How could I teach you to rewire your rudiments and the level-up your technique in the shortest amount of time?

This is what inspired me to create the Rudiments Rewired™ course.

What are drummers saying about Rudiments Rewired™?

Rudiments Rewired is a must have resource if you’re a drummer. James Laughlin is a master drummer who comes from years of teaching and performing experience. He’s played in the best bands around the world, is a 7-time World champion, and can speak from his vast years of experience. This is a must have resource to gain complete control of your sticks and move with confidence.


Rudiments rewired is a well-polished, slick platform to really level up on your technique and rudiments. This is the perfect resource no matter who you are; whether you’re a pipe band drummer or a drum kit player. Personally, I started working with James and his resources initially to improve my general technique on drum kit and while I did this I naturally fell into the pipe band scene. I’m now able to apply his wisdom and knowledge to all aspects of my drumming and I’m certainly feeling the improvement. I love how rudiments rewired is broken into 5 modules and begins with focusing on stick position, singles strokes, and double strokes. These two rudiments (singles and doubles) are so key to gaining complete control of the stick and allowing a drummer to execute more complex rudiments down the line. Singles strokes are sometimes overlooked and are one of the hardest rudiments to play clean and confidently. The fact that James makes this a focus point for one of the first two modules speaks volumes. Each video within each module is at a perfect length to grasp the concept and the best thing is that you can go back and re watch anything to take notes, play along, and let it soak in some more. James is a great speaker and has the ability to get a point across with such enthusiasm and clarity. He breaks down movements and thought processes so easily and you never leave a video feeling confused or intimidated. I also really like how James isolates each hand and moves around so the camera picks up the finer details. It’s extremely helpful to not only see the front on view but also the side view of the hand mechanics.


Rudiments Rewired is so clean and clear. Go get it!!

Rudiments Rewired – what an awesome resource for all levels, from beginners to more experienced drummers wanting to level up their skills! The on-line platform gives drummers flexibility to work through modules at their own pace, with some bonus lessons thrown in to challenge everyone.

Backed up by his extensive drumming and teaching experience, James Laughlin, presents clear and easy to follow explanations and tips and provides demonstrations from various angles to support correct execution techniques. With the comments option available, drummers can also easily seek advice on specific issues they may have.

James has included modules that are complementary to the usual rudiment sets, such as angles, tone and understanding of up and down strokes, to provide that extra level of understanding and execution skills.
