OTHER SCHEDULED ROR WORKSHOPS

New workshop venues are in process and will be listed as soon as confirmed.

NEW ROR VENUES

We are currently looking for other venues to host 2-day, weekend workshops, sponsored by the Percussion Marketing Council.

How would you like to host a Roots of Rhythm teacher workshop featuring ROR author, Dr. Craig Woodson? This is a cost-effective way of bringing this important multi-disciplinary curriculum to your area.

We have particular interest in northeastern, southeastern, and northwestern regions of the U.S., but all areas will be considered.

If you are interested or have suggestions regarding possible venues please contact Dr. Craig Woodson at woodsonphd@gmail.com or call 440-725-8767.
