A Roots To Rhythm program brings friends and family together in joyous celebration for reunions, weddings (including rehearsal dinner, ceremony, or reception), birthdays, and other private events.

We design honoring ceremonies into the drumming experience that gift the honoree(s), friends, and family a memory to last a lifetime.


Toni Kellar combines her years of traditional percussion instruction from her youth with her adult studies with world-class drumming and rhythm teachers to provide a unique presentation of various hand-drumming techniques, world rhythms, and improvisational development.

Classes are available to individuals or groups.

Toni's instrument specialty is the frame drum— the world's most ancient percussion instrument.

She teaches beginner and intermediate level frame drum classes (bodhran, tambourine, tar, riq), and uses Glen Velez's Handance method and Layne Redmond's model of the mind-body-spirit connection of multi-level rhythmic integration.

These methods unblock energy centers and opens pathways for personal and rhythmic growth.
