Rhythm Kids Program

Rhythm Kids classes are designed to help children develop their rhythm skills and gain a deeper level of musical understanding, preparing them for formal music instruction. The program includes:

  • Learning drumming patterns through playful animal-themed rhythmic chants

  • Experiencing and improvising with new repertoire using a range of percussion instruments

  • Ensemble and solo singing and drumming

  • Playing dynamic group and partner music and drumming games

  • Engaging in group movement activities and folk dances

  • Creating imaginative movements, improvising patterns, and sharing ideas

    with the group

  • Learning to take charge and lead others (like a conductor) as well as listen

    respectfully and follow peers/teacher when it is their turn to lead.

Mixed-Aged Classes - MT

Children 0-5 years old attend class together, and older children become leaders while younger children learn from the older children and all the adults in the room. Parent participation is very important as you are the most important music maker in your child's life. Go to the program link above on this page for more detailed information on our Curriculum.

Rhythm Kids Level 1 (4/5 with Adult)

Rhythm Kids 1 is the next musical step for your child (ages 4–6)- parents welcome.  Each week we drum, sing, dance, play rhythm 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.  Rhythm Kids Level 1 follows through on the Music Together® vision to help children complete the pathway of early childhood music development from birth through age eight.

  • 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.
