Music Together Rhythm Kids

Rhythm Kids™ K-2 is an exciting music, movement, and drumming class for children in Kindergarten through second grade (ages 5 through 8). It follows through on the Music Together® vision to help children complete the pathway of early childhood music development from birth through age 8.

In each weekly music class, we drum, sing, move, and play to rhythms inspired by musical traditions around the world, from West African Gahu, to Japanese Taiko, to Brazilian Samba, just to name a few.

Students learn to compose, choreograph, and conduct as they play—and play with!—a variety of musical instruments: West African djembe drums, percussion instruments, and, the most important instruments of all, their voices and their bodies. As your big kid learns to think and create like a musician, they’ll also build musical connections to the global community. Classes include:

  • immersion in the musical language of many cultures
  • playful music games with rules
  • opportunities to lead, balanced with opportunities to collaborate
  • deep exposure to complex, fun, and rockin’ music
  • many chances to solo, improvise, and work in ensembles
  • rich, creative experimentation and expression, improvisation, and innovation
  • down load code of all the music used in class and colorful activity book to use at home

An 8 or 9 inch djembe drum is required for the class.  Please bring your own or one can be rented on the registration form for $20 each session ($10 summer session)
