Few topics are more subject to debate among the drumming community than the Moeller technique. This column isn’t meant to teach you right from wrong. Instead, we’ll elaborate on how Jim Chapin taught the technique. Jim was a master of the Moeller technique, and he learned it directly from its greatest promoter, Sanford Moeller. I feel honored and blessed to have gotten to known Jim during the last twenty years of his life. He had such a vast knowledge of stick technique, and I’m forever grateful to have studied with him.
