Keri Rodger

Owner/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.

Ian Dickau

Teacher & 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.

David Kovatch

Event 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.
