Rhythm Kids Level 1 is the next musical step for your preschool child (ages 4–6). Parent/caregiver participation is encouraged but not required. Feel free to reach out to Center Director Leslie Pratt by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your child's readiness to participate independently. 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 children ages 4-6 and include:
8 weekly, 45-minute classes
Animal Collection Songbook and 2 CDs 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
A Toca Colorsound djembe drum is included in your tuition for the first semester of Rhythm Kids. This becomes your child's own djembe to play with at home and bring to class each week.
