Each week we will drum, sing, dance, play rhythm instruments, and play  music-based games that reinforce, in a fun and playful manner, the rhythm patterns that we learn in class. Rhythm Kids guides children toward developmentally appropriate  music and movement activities, where they can begin to take charge, lead others, and be musically creative as they:

  • Make up their own drumming patterns
  • Invent new ways to play rhythm instruments (shakers, sticks, etc.)
  • Create movement ideas for songs
  • Practice soloing, ensemble play, and conducting!

 

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

Children will:

  • Explore the world of rhythm through movement, instrument play, and song
  • Develop basic rhythm skills, like keeping a variety of levels of  beat,
  • Learn to create, improvise, cooperate, and express themselves musically
  • Rhythm Kids is a “drop-off” optional class. The online equivalent of this means that parents are welcome to stay and participate or children may attend on their own, if they’re ready.

Need a drum?

You’ll need something to drum on—a box, a bucket, a bowl. But of course, children LOVE having real drums! We have a couple of beautiful djembes available for purchase—you can email us for more information.
