The Moeller Technique Course for Optimal Drumming

Elijah Baker via Udemy

(17 Reviews)


Are you looking to move to the next level in your drumming? This course will demystify the process of learning the Moeller Technique and guide you step by step so you can develop speed, control and flow on the drum set. Importantly, you will also learn to play in a relaxed way in order to avoid or even heal drumming related injuries.

The course includes:

  • How to hold your sticks properly in the German Grip, so you can master your fundamentals.

  • Over 30 comprehensive and to-the-point video lessons that will allow you to review each exercise until you get them just right.

  • Detailed breakdowns of the building blocks that make up the technique, so you can build your skills 1-step-at-a-time without getting lost.

  • Clear demonstrations of the important role of each finger and how to use fulcrum so that you can avoid and heal drumming injuries.

  • How to play the 3-Note, 4-Note and 2-Note Moeller exercises, which allow you to play any combination of fast accented single strokes.

  • How to develop hand speed so you can play impressive drum solos, smooth drum fills and rock solid grooves.

  • How to develop the ability to play fast accented 32nd notes.

  • How to Play Wipeout by the Surfaris

The course is laid out over a 4 month timeline with a detailed practise schedule that will help you understand how much time to spend on each exercise before moving on. Once you've mastered the motions that are presented in this course, you'll be able to apply them to everything you play on the drums such as rudiments, drum beats, fills, solos, etc.

What is the Moeller Technique? It is a technique originally developed by Sanford Moeller and passed on through Jim Chapin and Freddie Gruber. Freddie Gruber added to the development of the Moeller Technique through his close affiliation with legendary drummer Buddy Rich. I created this course after studying with disciples of Chapin and Gruber.

*I did not invent any of this material, I am simply passing it on. This material helped tremendously and therefore I believe it can help you too.

Who this course is for:

  • Drummers who are interested in learning optimal technique
