Rhythm Kids (pre-K--2nd grade)

Rhythm Kids™ is for children 4-8 years old who are ready to lead musical activities with their peers. Children dig deeper and gain a richer understanding of how music works.   

Taught in two levels, one for 4-5 year-olds and one for K-2nd graders, each week we drum, sing, dance, play rhythm instruments, and play music-based games that reinforce, in a fun, playful manner, the rhythm patterns that we learn in class. Rhythm Kids™ 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

  • practice soloing, ensemble play and conducting!

Rhythm Kids™ carries on the Music Together® vision to help children complete the pathway of early childhood music development from birth through age eight. Classes include:

  • 10 weekly, 45-minute classes

  • Songbook, CDs and Download Codes 

  • Access to online drum-play videos and other material

Children will:

  • Explore the world of rhythm through movement, instrument play, and song

  • Develop basic rhythm skills, like keeping a variety of levels of beat,

  • Learn to create, improvise, cooperate, and express themselves musically

Drums will be provided for the class each week in Level 1, but if you’d like your child to have a drum to play with at home, please ask your teacher about the special discounts on djembe drums that are available to Music Together families. Level 2 Rhythm Kids will need their own drum, which you may provide on your own or take advantage of the special prices available to you through Music Together.

Rhythm Kids™ is a drop-off optional class. Parents are welcome to stay and participate or children may attend on their own, if they're ready.

Tuition for all Music Together classes includes family materials to use at home (e.g., recordings of our award-winning music, illustrated songbook, parent education resources).
