Lest Richatd Bolal MODERN RUDIMENTAL SWING SOLOS FOR THE ADVANCED DRUMMER Lo: 10300203 Printed LENG ae CHARLES WILCOXON was born in Newark, Ohio on November 26, 1894. Early in life, he showed his talent and love for the drums, playing for hours on homemade drums made from whatever ‘was at hand, and giving shows. To earn the money for his first drum set, Wilcoxon would deliver papers, run delivery errands for a furniture store, and perform farm yard chores around town. At 14, he joined the show “Spring Maid,” the equivalent to “My Fair Lady” of today on the vaudeville circuit After leaving the vaudeville theatre, Charles opened a drum shop and studio where he had a lathe and turned out custom made drum sticks, and taught percussion studies, his passion. While writing drum parts for each individual student, Charles decided to put his playing experience in book form, which became Modern Rudimental Swing Solos for the Advanced Drummer. The All-American Drummer was done by hand in six weeks. His next book was Drum Method, which he also used for his instructions. He went on to write such books as: Drummer On Parade With Street Beats, The Junior Drummer, Rolling in Rhythm, Drumming! Plus Hummin’ A Tune, and individual contest drum solos. He always said “Don’t copy, be original,” which is exactly what he was. “The ability to teach is the rarest of gifts.” ~ Excerpts from an autobiography written by “Mrs. Charley” RICHARD SAKAL currently resides in Bedford, Ohio. He is an editor and sales manager at Ludwig Music Publishing Company. In his off hours he performs professionally as well as teaches. He has been involved in a wide variety of musical enterprises since 1959. He has played jazz with the Tony Lovano, Jim Orlando and Norm Knuth groups in addition to his work with the “music ministry,” providing polka masses at Cleveland, Columbus and Milwaukee area churches. He also teaches privately and is involved with a Musical Therapy program for Down Syndrome children. Dick regularly plays drums with “The Orcades” and the “Hronek Heritage Band.” The Open Stroke Roll 5 4 ffieees?|| Flam 3 Stroke Rutt High . wast 4 Stroke Ruit 5 Stroke Roll 7 Stroke Roll 9 Stroke Roll 10) Stroke Roll II Stroke Roll 13 Stroke Roll 15 Stroke Roll 17 Stroke Roll Copyright L941 by Chas.
