This 35-minute weekly class is the next musical step for your preK-2nd graders with drop-in optional. Each week we drum, sing, dance, play & improvise on rhythm insturments and play music-based games. 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 drumming patterns, invent new ways to play, create movement ideas for songs and take a drum solo! Rhythm Kids™ follows through on the Music Together® vision to help children complete the pathway of early childhood music development from birth through age 8. As part of the Rhythm Kids™ experience, children and their grownups can enjoy drumming play and practice sessions at home with the help of online play-along videos featuring Rhythm Kids™ creator Tom Foote. Classes include;weekly 45 minute classes, Animal Collection Songbook and 1 CD each semester, plus Access to online drum-play videos and other online material. All students are recommended to have their own djembe to use at home as well as to bring it to class each week.
