In this episode of Percussion Education, I want to introduce the concept of Wrist Lifts. I don’t want this to be confused with the Moeller Technique. If you are not familiar with the Moeller Technique or Method, there are a lot of videos and method books that describe this approach to drumming. As you will see in the video, the wrist lift is not a whipping motion. Instead, it is used to help facilitate an accent. Thanks for your support of Percussion Education. Please leave comments below and let me know what you think about the videos.
