Chuck Silverman - In Memory

The Remo family mourns the loss of legendary educator and drum set artist Chuck Silverman, who passed away suddenly on May 1st.

Chuck was a brilliant educator who taught at Musicians Institute for many years, and was renowned the world over for incorporating Afro-Cuban, Caribbean and Brazilian rhythms into the modern drum set. His books are required reading in many drum programs, and include Practical Applications 1, 2 and 3, which are included in Modern Drummer’s list of “Best Drum Books of All Time.”

A highly sought after clinician, Chuck made regular visits to Cuba and Brazil, as well as recent clinics in Italy and PASIC 2013. His passion and enthusiasm for drumming will live on through his students, DVDs and books. We all owe a debt of gratitude to Chuck for expanding our knowledge of the drum set across multiple cultures.

Our deepest sympathies go out to Chuck’s family, friends, colleagues and students.
