Total Rhythmâ„¢ Workshops

All Workshops take place at the Total Rhythm Studio unless otherwise noted

These workshops give the drumming community an opportunity to try new styles and instructors they might not have been exposed to before. They are lots of fun and a great way to meet new people too!
