Coordinated Independence & Hand-Development
for Jazz & ALL Contemporary Drumming Styles


"Advanced Techniques for the Modern Drummer" written by Jim Chapin.
For several decades, "the Chapin book" considered the definitive study on coordinated independence (as applied to ALL styles)... generations of drummers have struggled to master it.



Moeller Method

Moeller Method a "time-tested concept" which each student, young and old, student and professional, male and female, will find an essential prerequisite for any realistic attempt at Advanced studies.

"Moeller made you play things with a continuous motion," Chapin said in a 1981 Modern Drummer article. "The motion was the message. You made the motion and the stick played it. After awhile, it almost played itself."

"(Sanford) Moeller analyzed everything and stressed taking everything apart. If you played a paradiddle, you would learn what each hand did by itself. So from the time Moeller showed me that, I was able to think in terms of doing one thing with one hand and one thing with the other. That was the reason I got into the things that later developed into my book, 'Advanced Techniques for the Modern Drummer'." Jim Chapin
