Rhythm Kids!

Rhythm Kids is an exciting music, movement, and drumming class for children in Kindergarten through Second grade. Children integrate and assimilate rhythm into their lives, as they:

  · learn multicultural drumming patterns;
· develop new repertoire on various percussion instruments;
· explore movement and dance while singing songs;
· play games based on music and drumming;
· have fun with a host of rhythm activities. 

Rhythm Kids follows through on the Music Together® vision to help children complete the pathway of early childhood music development from birth through age eight. A special part of the Rhythm Kids class experience is the play-along videos and other materials available online. 

Classes are for children who are in Kindergarten, First, or Second Grade, and include:

· Nine weekly, 45-minute classes
