SEATTLE, WA – March 31, 2024 – You are invited to join a Masterclass for listeners and musicians, all are welcome, no musical experience or ability is required.

The workshop is a participatory experience demonstrating how Nik and his band work together to craft their distinctive sound grounded in polymeter and precision. Ronin music consistently follows the same aesthetic vision under various instrumental guises: creating the maximum effect by minimal means, a principle that has guided their decades of work with Ritual Groove Music.

The workshop complements the band’s Saturday March 30th show at the Triple Door in Seattle. The masterclass aspires to be an enlightening experience for all attendees, offering a deeper understanding of the band’s music and their unique approach to composition, improvisation and performance.

The workshop fee is $150 / or $99 for students, and we have a few scholarships available from our generous sponsors, Seattle Circle, the Seattle Composers Alliance, and Tiny Orchestral Moments..
