In Rhythm Kids® Level 2 classes, students ages 5 1/2 to 7 years old explore rhythm by playing with music from around the world. Music Together–trained teachers lead dynamic classroom activities designed especially for early elementary students, and the discovery continues at home with the interactive Rhythm Kids videos, easily viewable on our app. As they drum, sing, and move to new rhythms, children naturally build musicality that helps them prepare for formal music lessons. Opportunities to solo, work in ensembles, and improvise support social and listening skills, self-expression, and self-confidence. Rhythm Kids Level 2 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 2 carries on the Music Together® vision to help children complete the pathway of early childhood music development from birth through age eight. Classes and include:
10 weekly, 45-minute classes
Songbook and CD each semester
