Music Time will begin offering Rhythm Kids® classes in the Summer of 2019!
Rhythm Kids is an exciting music, movement, and drumming program for children ages 4 - 8. This program follows through on Music Together®'s vision to help children complete the path of early childhood music development for birth through age 8. Children will explore the world of rhythm through movment, instrument play and song using their bodies, djembes, and voices!
The Rhythm Kids program is divided into two age groups, but both programs include:
Weekly 45 minute classes
Animal Collection songbook, CD, and download code
Access to online drum-play/tutorial videos
Rhythm Kids Level One (ages 4-5 years)
Rhythm Kids Level 1 is geared for preschoolers who are ready to take their next music step. Each week we drum, sing, dance, play instruments and begin to play music-based games. Rhythm Kids Level 1 guides children toward developmentally appropriate music and movement activities, where they can begin to take charge, lead others, and be musically creative as they make up their own drumming patterns, invent new ways to play rhythm instruments, create movement ideas for songs and even take a drum solo! Parents are encouraged to stay in this class (and they might enjoy the drumming themselves!). Drums will be provided for the class each week but if you'd like your child to have a drum to play with at home (and then continue to use in Level 2 classes), please ask your teacher about the special discounts on djembe drums that are available to Music Together Families.
