We are saddened by the passing of our colleague and friend, Chuck Silverman, who died unexpectedly on May 1, 2014; he was 62 years old. We are thankful for Chuck's involvement with the Drummer Cafe over the years, and grateful that he chose to share his teachings with our Drummer Cafe - Premium Resource subscribers.

My DVD and eBook, Basic Snare Drum Technique, demonstrates the teachings of my two snare technique teachers; Richard Wilson and Murray Spivack. There's just not enough information out there about these two snare drum technique masters, which is why I humbly give my take on their instruction which has influenced me and many of my students.

There is a scarcity of information about the teachings of Mr. Spivack and Mr. Wilson, though they taught some of the greatest drummers of the past 40 years, so these products are designed to bring the distinguished teachers’ methodologies to a new generation.

The Basic Snare Drum Technique DVD is divided into four parts (total run time: 100 minutes). The Basic Snare Drum Technique eBook describes, in detail, the inner workings of basic motions with this very natural technique.
