i was very happy to stumble across your site with the moeller article. many drummers these days seem to be on the "moeller band wagon i found your writing about moeller quite clear, actually. i hope you'll invest some more of your time in further articles regarding this interesting man, and the technique that i think frees drummers to communicate music better. thanks again for your timely reply (to my e-mail inquiry) N. H.
I'm am still struggling to control the moeller stroke I believe it will change my drumming forever .... And again thanks for posting this info. B.R.
Really appreciated the site and the info. Bill
I saw your site, and read your bio, I like your site it is very informative and I thank you for it, as my drum teacher is still slightly foggy on the situation. C.M.
I disagree ... with the concept of the wrist being above the stick on the "Up movement". Time is wasted doing it like that, why not just rotate the wrist moving the hand over while bring up the forearm ? C.F.
Great article ... by far, the best I have seen ANYWHERE...thanks for the great article and videos! Paul
Great site on the Moeller technique!
Do you recommend learning the true Moeller grip? One thing I was wondering practice-wise, are you supposed to grip the stick with the thumb and first and second finger at all? In the clips it looks like the thumb doesn't even grip the stick.
Is it a useful skill just to be able to control the stick with the little finger? ..how can Moeller be used for fast singles/finger control? ...did Moeller advocate this finger control (that you demonstrate)? ...and btw, thanks a lot for all the information and help! Zeke
Excellent site! ...how can Moeller be used
for fast singles/finger control? Thanks for your time,
I was fascinated by your web article on the Moeller technique...all the practitioners I've seen in action have been very impressive. Can you help with locating a source of supply of the book...? S.H.
[Had I been] aware ... of the Moellersystem (and been mastering it) i'm shure i would have been avoiding some tension and slight injuries... P-A T.
I do have the Moeller book and your web pages are the first
instruction I have come across that is detailed enough to give me the confidence to proceed with trying to learn the Moeller technique from
the book. I have been practicing [another] book since December, and I have developed a (mild) inflammation in my right wrist since intensifying the exercises...M.N.
I was a student for many years and was never told about this technique by my drum tutor and stumbled across it while browsing the internet. Once again, many thanks for a wonderful article ...G.A.
Thank you for a tremendous and informative article on the Moeller technique!
So thanks, Mr. Hanson for creating a site that not only introduces the Moeller style but also elaborates upon it in such a way that even I can understand it ... I was whipping out lightning-fast 4 stroke rolls with hardly any effort. In addition, my triple stoke rolls are faster and more effortless than I could have ever imagined.

Thanks a lot for your articles, it's the most detailed information
about Moeller method that I've found in internet! I was very
interested in The Moeller Book and history of his method and now I got
the answers to my questions and many things a now clear to me, so,
P.S. Sorry my english - it's not native for me

I thoroughly enjoyed this article and found it genuinely helpful. I have only been practicing the Moeller approach for just acouple of weeks and am beginning to feel the advantages in my playing already.
Thank you for your level of comprehensiveness and balance in this article.

For anyone interested to write ... please use terms to describe your thoughts as found in Moeller's book. Thank you.
i.e. ... There is no such thing as a 'Moeller stroke'. Moeller, himself, would not have approved of this term.
