Instructional - Moeller Method

Moeller Method

Moeller Method can be taught for matched and traditional grips & applies to any drumming style (used by Vinnie Colaiuta, Jo Jo Mayer, Thomas Lang, Joe Morello, Steve Smith, Buddy Rich, Dave Weckl, etc)

As a former student of Jim Chapin (20th century's most influential drum set educator & g-dfather of Indepdendence) Jacob is uniquely qualified to teach the Coordinated-Independence & Moeller Method, a "time-tested concept" which he learned "one-on-one" from Jim Chapin (who studied with Sanford A. Moeller, himself).

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 a while, it almost played itself."
