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.
