Ron Kravitz

In Graduates, Pennsylvania by jan_mfp

Ron Kravitz of Music in the Moment Improvisation Workshop’s for Everyone was first introduced to the joys of singing as a boy, by his mother who was a semi professional singer.  Later on along the path, he was introduced to West African drumming by the late and great Babatunde Olatunji.  In 1988, Ron took cellist David Darling’s Music For Everyone Workshop at Omega Institute.  That experience opened Ron up to a new world of musical freedom with endless possibility’s of self expression.  From the seeds of that inspiration, Ron has since created a community center of sorts in his residential suburban home in Wyndmoor, Pa.
