Rhythm Kids

Rhythm Kids is an exciting music, movement, and drumming class for children in Pre-K  through second grade (ages 3 1/2 -8). Children integrate and assimilate rhythm into their lives, as they:

  • learn multicultural drumming patterns
  • develop new repertoire on various percussion instruments
  • explore movement and dance while singing songs
  • play games based on music and drumming
  • have fun with a host of rhythm activities

Rhythm Kids follows through on the Music Together® vision to help children complete the pathway of early childhood music development from birth through age eight.

Classes include:

  • 10 weekly, 45 minute classes
  • 2 CDs each semester
  • Access to online i-home activity pages
  • Access to online video tutorials and play-alongs

Children will:

  • Learn, create, discover and explore music, movement and drumming
  • Enjoy age-appropriate ways to play rhythm instruments (shakers, tambourines, etc.)
  • Explore traditional drumming patterns through animal names and movements
  • Experience drumming, song, and dance from around the world (Mali, Puerto Rico, Turkey, etc.)
  • Find new ways to connect mind, body, and voice through rhythm
