Rhythm Kids- Level 1

Coming Fall 2017 Session

Rhythm Kids Level 1 is the next musical step for your preschool child (ages 4-5) with a parent or caregiver. 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, as they:

  • make up their own drumming patterns
  • invent new ways to play rhythm instruments (shakers, sticks, etc.)
  • create movement ideas for songs
  • even take a drum solo!

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.

Classes are for preschoolers ages 4-5 and include:

  • Weekly, 45 minute classes
  • Animal Collection Songbook and 2 CD's each semester
  • Access to online drum-play videos and other material

Your child will:

  • Explore the world of rhythm through movement, instrument play, and song
  • Develop basic rhythm skills, like keeping beat, improvising, ensemble play, and soloing
  • Learn to create, cooperate, and express themselves musically

Djembe drums must be purchased by the familes before the 1st day of class, so your child will have a drum to play at home. Once you are registered, the director will provide you with specific online vendors for reasonable price. These drums will be continued to use in Level 2 classes!
