FUTURE meets TRADITION
In fact, the passing on of this ever-present drumming philosophy (named after Jim‘s Mentor Sanford Moeller) could hardly be in better hands – especially if Jim Chapin being the undisputed master of this technique puts out a quote like this. Besides being seen as “legitimate MOELLER TECHNIQUE successor” of Jim, Claus is mostly known for his unique OPEN-HANDED approach to drumset playing and has performed at numerous DRUM EVENTS across “planet drum”, sharing stage with players like Steve Smith, Alex Acuna, Walfredo Reyes Jr., JoJo Mayer, Johnny Rabb or percussion fame Luis Conte – also earning STANDING OVATIONS at PASIC, Indianapolis. SABIAN has also created the 18″ and 20″ HH GARAGE RIDE in collaboration with Claus, besides that he is endorsing MAPEX drums, EVANS drumheads, GON BOPS percussion, VIC FIRTH sticks, the DRUMMERSHOE and COOPERMAN rope tension drums.

MUSIC meets TECHNIQUE
Influences from World Music, Jazz and rudimental applications connect to a musical mix in which technique is always just a means to an end – and never dominating the performance. Besides his solistic work in clinic-like settings Claus has been performing in a variety of musical styles with bands/artists like the Grammy Award winning New York Voices, Barbara Dennerlein, Mike Stern, African Balafon great Mamadou Diabate, Sting’s Rhani Krija and Dominic Miller, Herb Ellis or Larry Coryell to his credit. Most recent musical activities include his work with FLUX or Stefan Hergenröder on bass.

GROOVE meets INDEPENDENCE
Trademark of Claus’ individual style  is a mixture of stunning technical skills, ostinato-work, a wide variety of musical styles and open-handed playing – bridging the gap between “just drums” and real-world musical applications.

FUN meets EDUCATION
His educational packages OPEN-HANDED PLAYING VOL. I + II (released with Wizdom Media/Alfred Publishing; co-authored by Dom Famularo and with prefaces by Billy Cobham, Simon Philipps, Will Kennedy and Kenny Aronoff) gained worldwide recognition including a FOUR-STAR review in the “Modern Drummer” and have been nominated “Best Educational Book 2013″. His book DAILY DRUMSET WORKOUT went to 3rd printing in less than a year from its original release – again being nominated “Best Educational Book” in the UK and with Modern Drummer Magazine. His double DVD DRUMMING KAIROS is one of the most comprehensive packages in drumset education. His most recent publication CAMP DUTY UPDATE with credits from John Wooton, Vic Firth or David Garibaldi covers the rich historic side of our drumming heritage in previously unknown dimensions. In Germany, Claus maintains a busy teaching schedule including the University for Music and Performing Arts in Frankfurt; he is also the first European drumset player to be honored with a DISTINGUISHED PROFESSOR degree at Keimyung University in Daegu, South Korea. He is constantly contributing to the biggest European drum magazine DRUMS & PERCUSSION and their (english) iPad App. Claus is a member of the education team at MODERN DRUMMER contributing educational columns. His clinics feature an ENTERTAINING MIX of information, drumming and interaction with the audience – HUMOUR included. On special request Claus is also available for PRIVATE LESSONS – one-on-one and well as through SKYPE with students from Europe, the US, South America, Australia and the far east likewise. He is also the chairman of PERCUSSION CREATIV, the biggest German speaking community for drummers and percussionists in Europe.

 


Christian "Sticks" Einheller, Austria (Teacher) Website - Facebook

„hear what  music needs“

Born in a small village in Upper Austria Christian soon discovered the world of rhythm.
Having great fun with music and the desire to understand the world of rhythm have always been his stimulation.
After his studies at the local music school he continued studying with Stefan Spatz at the free music academy in Passau.

Los Angeles was his next destination, where he successfully finished his studies at the Los Angeles Music Academy.
His teachers were Michito Sanchez, Emil Richards, Joe Porcaro, Rulp Humphrey, Mike Shapiro, Jerry Steinholz, Tony Inzalaco, Dave Beyer, Mike Packer, Aaron Serfaty, Sherman Ferguson, Billy Hulting, Richie Garjate-Garcia,... and these great guys more and more opened Christian’s understanding and feeling for rhythm.
In the course of these studies he had the opportunity to cooperate with John JR Robinson(Michael Jackson/Chaka Khan,...) in the studio.

After returning home to Austria he graduated at Anton-Bruckner-University in Linz with a  bachelor degree on the drums and a master degree in percussion with Stephan Maass.

In 2012 Christian took delight in improving his percussion skills with Alex Acuna.
While studying he already could show his skills in national and international band and studio projects.
As live and studio percussionist with Makossa&Megablast, Christian Kolonovits, Richard Schönherz,  Sandra Pires, Joni Madden, Monika Ballwein, Annemarie Höller&Mario Berger, Late Night Big Band,... he is very much asked for.
Since 2006 he is endorser for Meinl Percussion Instruments.
