Meet the One World Family
Roger DuncanOwner/Event Facilitator/Teacher
As founder of One World Roger has been using the drum to create community since 1993. Whether in the schools or in a corporation Roger's background in business and as an entertainer makes him an asset to any event.
Keri RodgerOwner/Office Manager
Keri always knew she would be an entrepreneur. Her skills as an artist are offset by her talent for customer service and organization. She started in One World in 1993 as something just to do and now its her life.
David KovatchEvent Facilitator
As a boy David dreamed that when he grew up he would be a music teacher. As life happens David never stopped playing music but he did not become a music teacher. Well not till now anyways. Now David is teaching drumming and living out his dream - to be a music teacher.
Trudy's passion for the drum extends back in years. She has become one of Calgary's best female percussionists. Trudy studies by invitation to study with Master drummer Mamady Keita and brings her knowledge back to the One World community. Trudy drums her stuff in the Djembe 2 and Djembe 3 classes on Thursday nights. We are also very lucky as a number of times over the year she offers specialty workshops on a variety of drumming styles such as AfroCuban, Middle Eastern, Samba and many others.
Ian DickauTeacher & Drum Circle Facilitator
An old friend to the drum. Ian first came to the drum through the kit. Having met Roger oh so many years ago the two started many bands and played their drums. Ian's passion for the drum led him to the Ashiko then to the Djembe. And now we are pleased that he has joined the ranks of the teachers of One World. Ian specializes in the 8 week Beginner drum classes as well as Djembe Open Level.
Andie left One World as a student and returned to us as a teacher. Having traveled to Africa to study with Famadou Konate we are pleased to have her teach at OWD and share her passion and understanding of rhythm. As busy as Andie is with her Calgary Public School teaching job, her two younger children we are really happy to have Andie co-teaching the Djembe 1/2 and Performance classes on Tuesday night.
Quinn has a style about him that brings people to ease. His nature and years of team coaching youth gives him an updated style in the classroom. His passion for the drum keeps him busy. Quinn has taught every level available at One World over the many years that he has been with us. Currently he co-teaches the Djembe 1/2 and Performance classes on Tuesday night with Andie.
