Drum Major Jim Kilpatrick MBE

Drum Major Jim Kilpatrick MBE

Jim is one of the greatest and most successful pipe band leading drummers to date. The high levels of excellence achieved by Jim do not stop at the drum corps; Jim is the most successful drummer to have won the World Solo Drumming Championship, being crowned world champion on no less than 16 occasions.

Outwith the band, Jim also teaches all over the world at seminars and schools. Presently, Jim is lecturing pipe band snare drumming for the degree course in Scottish Music at the Royal School Academy of Music & Drama in Glasgow. His tuition is always in demand in overseas countries. So much so, that the influence Jim has abroad can be seen in his drum corps; his past pupils have moved from Australia, Canada, Denmark and the USA to play in the corps. Jim also has his own drumming supplies company Jim Kilpatrick Percussion.

On 31 December, 2003, Jim was named in the Queen's New Year Honours List as an MBE in recognition of his services to music.

Jim currently plays the Jim Kilpatrick Percussion KP2 stick and Pearl Pipe Band Series drums with Remo CyberMax heads, as does
