Default The "CoP Tutor" for Snare Drum?

I'm focusing more on piping these days, but I wonder what would be considered the CoP or NPC tutor equivalent(s) for snare drum? I initially got involved with my local pipers' society to learn the Scottish style of drumming, but admit that I quickly became enamored with the pipes and their numerous bits and parts.

I've heard good things about the Doug Stronach snare tutor, but wonder what other options might be out there!

Cheers,
Joe

You are in luck. The 3 RSPBA Structured Learning books are now available free in PDF form from the RSPBA site. They cover drumming as well as piping to a graded level.

Book 1 (Elementary) link is here

Book 2 (Intermediate) link is here

Book 3 (Advanced) link is here

The D2 book, "In Your Hands" is I think the most complete book available, though I would recommend backing it up with some form of instruction. The pipebanddrummer.com site is also a fantastic supplement.

Thank you both for the recommendations. I'll certainly check these materials out soon, especially the freely available ones!
