Jake Jørgensen

Scottish Power Pipe Band

Originally from Denmark, Jake Jørgensen started learning the drums at the age of 11 with the Copenhagen Caledonia Pipe Band. In the early years, he received instruction from local drummers Per Nørklit, Sven Harboe and Jens Hedegaard. He was able to take inspiration from visiting tutors, such as Tom Brown, Reid Maxwell, Eric Ward and Barry Wilson.

In 2000, Jake moved to Scotland and joined the Shotts & Dykehead Drum Corps under the direction of Leading Drummer, Jim Kilpatrick MBE. During his time with Shotts, Jake took part in winning all of the major championships, including the Grade 1 World Pipe Band Championships in 2003 & 2005. At the same time, the Shotts drum corps won all 5 major championship titles several times over, including the World Drum Corps Title in 2002, 2003, 2005 and 2014, and also seven Champion of Champions Drum Corps titles.


“I am immensely excited to be joining British Drum Company - a team full of talent, passion and knowledge. The design, build quality and sound of the Axial range is impressive and I look forward to playing these superb instruments”
