Due to COVID-19, we are offering Online via Zoom AND small in-person Outdoor Rhythm Kids classes this Winter beginning January 5th! Our in-person Outdoor classes will be held in the gated courtyard where we have our main location (1103 Jefferson, First Church of the Brethren--see the photo below). Try a class with us!
Families enrolled in our Outdoor classes MUST sign a Health History Review and a COVID-19 Waiver before the first day of class.
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 for children K–2 (ages 5 through 8) and include:
Weekly, 45-minute classes
Animal Collection Songbook and CD each semester
Access to online video tutorials and play-alongs
A child–sized djembe drum (for the purchase or rental of $30.)
This Winter is our Elephant Song Collection! featuring rhythms from Australia! The Elephant Rhythm features triple-meter drumming patterns inspired by the traditional social dance from Mali known as Suku. We’ll enjoy dramatic play in “Elephant Stampede” and choreographed dancing and drumming in “Music Everywhere.” We’ll also learn a delightful Gaelic children’s song called “Dilín ó Deamhas” and, of course, have a blast doing “The Elephant Dance”! All the songs in this collection have been chosen and arranged specifically to support each student’s music development.
In addition to your weekly classes, tuition includes a new songbook, along with online access to the music and bonus activities, as well as Rhythm Kids videos to watch at home.
