Through a "hands on the instruments" experience, participants see and hear, sometimes for the first time, how music begins acoustically, before it reaches them through speakers. His workshops have themes such as Musical Storytelling, A World of Instruments, Building Your Own Instruments, How to Form a Band, Humour in Song, and Working with an Audience . Roger prefers to work with Pre- , Elementary, Middle, High school students, as well as Adults, Seniors, Families, and Special Needs.
