                           WINTER '21 RHYTHM KIDS CLASSES - IN-PERSON & ONLINE

                                                               RHYTHM KIDS CLASSES WILL BEGIN THE WEEK OF JANUARY 18-22nd

                                               We drum & dance.  We stomp & sing.  We conduct & compose. 

                                                           We play games & make music the Big Kid way!

Rhythm Kids®  is our new music, movement and drumming program that helps children complete the pathway of early childhood music development from ages 4 to 8 years old. Children dig deeper and gain a richer understanding of how music works. Rhythm Kids is the natural first step towards learning an instrument. Kids learn rhythms and songs, dances and drumming patterns from cultures around the world. This is their chance to take their very own music class, whether in class or at home!

 

Rhythm Kids is an exciting music, movement, and drumming class where children integrate and assimilate rhythm into their lives, as they:

  • 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.
  • Develop skill in improvising, soloing, conducting, composition, and improvisation.
  • Participate in active musical games that are both enriching and totally fun!

Rhythm Kids follows through on the Music Together® vision to help children complete the pathway of early childhood music development from birth through age 8. As part of the Rhythm Kids experience, children and their grownups can enjoy drumming play and practice sessions at home with the help of online play-along videos featuring Rhythm Kids creator Tom Foote.

Classes are offered for 4-8 year olds with parent participation strongly encouraged. Classes are offered for both beginning (level 1) and intermediate (level 2) students in a combined, family-style setting. 

 

 

 

Is my baby too young for Mixed-Age Music Together classes?

 Babies have already been listening and responding to music, language, and other sounds for as much as half of their lives before birth.  A child is never to young to hear and respond to music and language.

-Music Together Parent Guide Book 

"Ages birth through six are crucial.  These are the years that neural pathways develop most rapidly.  The window is fully open for musical growth and development!"

Mixed Age Classes:

These classes are for ages birth - five and their parents or caregivers.  Ten weekly, 45-minute classes include a variety of songs, rhythmic rhymes, movement, props, and instrument play/jam sessions.  (Summer sessions are typically 6 weeks long).  These activities are presented as informal, non-performance-oriented musical experiences--developmentally appropriate for children and easy for parents and caregivers--regardless of their own musical ability.  A CD, digital download, and Songbook are included, along with a Parent Guide DVD and exclusive access to the new Family Music Zone!  

Rhythm Kids Classes:

Music Together RHYTHM KIDS is the answer to "What's next for my child?"! The Rhythm Kids program is the "next step" offering for 4-8 year-olds whether they are Music Together veterans or new to the program. Classes are 45 minutes long and prepare the children for basic music literacy with a more sophisticated, structured approach using music and movement activities that are developmentally appropriate for this age group-as well as all the features of Music Together that families love. Families receive a CD and a special Rhythm Kids Songbook for each collection, as well as weekly “HomePlay” pages with optional home activities.
