Music Together RHYTHM KIDS™

A brand new Music Together experience for children K–2!

Rhythm Kids™ K-2 is an exciting music, movement, and drumming class for children in Kindergarten through second grade (ages 5 through 8).


An exciting new addition to our Music Together® offerings!

Taught by veteran Music Together® teacher Tracey Weirich, the cost for this session is $210 (siblings can attend for $150 each) and includes:

  • 10 weekly, 45-min. classes
  • Actual djembe drum
  • Animal Collection Songbook and CDs (2 copies) each semester
  • Access to online video tutorials and play-alongs

Participating children will:

  • Learn, create, discover and explore music, movement and drumming
  • Experience drumming, song, and dance from around the world (Mali, Puerto Rico, Turkey, etc.)
  • 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.
