Rhythm Kids


Rhythm Kids Level 2 is an exciting music, movement, and drumming class for children in Kindergarten through second grade (ages 5 through 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 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:

  • 10 weekly, 45-minute classes

  • Animal Collection Songbook and CD each semester

  • Access to online video tutorials and play-alongs

  • A child–sized djembe drum 

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

  • Develop skill in improvising, soloing, conducting, composition, and improvisation

  • Participate in active musical games that are both enriching and totally fun!

This is an instrument-learning class, so your child will need a drum. A child–sized djembe drum is included in semester tuition. Tuition for the fall semester is $195, which includes 10 weeks of 45-minute classes, an animal collection songbook and CD, online video tutorials and play-alongs, and a djembe drum. Siblings of a registered student are $90, with the option of purchasing an additional djembe drum for $30. There is a $10 registration fee for new families and a $5 returning family registration fee.
