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:

  • 8 weekly, 45-minute classes

  • Animal Collection Songbook and CD each semester

  • Access to online video tutorials and play-alongs

  • A child–sized djembe drum 

This is an instrument-learning class, so your child will need a drum. A child–sized djembe drum is available for purchase of $30. Tuition for the spring semester is $138, which includes 8 weeks of 45-minute classes, an animal collection songbook and CD, online video tutorials and play-alongs. Siblings of a registered student are $90. There is a $10 registration fee for new families and a $5 returning family registration fee. Payment plans and a limited amount of scholarship money are available upon request. 

This Spring we'll explore the Toucan Collection with drumming patterns from Brazil, heard on a song called "In Rio." Children will discover the fun of samba music and dancing with the song "Sambalele" - and even learn to sing in Portuguese! We'll learn to beatbox, as we dance, and sing about our friends in "Bout My Friends." And, of course, we will sing, hop, and fly like Toucans over the rainforests of South America as we sing and drum along to "Two Toucans."
