Our Rhythm Kids classes for 4 through 8 year olds are just the thing to get your child moving and making music with new friends. Designed specifically for early elementary students, these active classes tap into how children this age are wired to learn, with djembe drumming, music games, animal rhythm stories, and lots of stomping-flying-climbing fun.
In each weekly class, your child will drum, sing, move, and play to rhythms inspired by musical traditions around the world, from West African Gahu, to Japanese Taiko, to Brazilian Samba, to name a few. As they learn to think and create like a musician, they’ll also gain valuable skills they’ll take to the elementary school classroom (and beyond!): confidence, focus, leadership, cognitive flexibility, and more. With Rhythm Kids, your child will happily put down the iPad and show off what they’ve learned!
Join us for the Hippo collection!
This season's Hippo song collection will feature drumming patterns, a song, and folk dance from Ghana! Also a beautiful song from the Andes region (Peru), Sharing Song promoting self-care and sharing with friends and community, and the super fun song hip hop hippo. Several selections from the Music Together flute collection will include Hey Lolly, Ran Tin Tinnah, and Shake Those 'Simmons Down, just to name a few! In addition to your weekly classes, tuition includes a new songbook, along with online access to the music and bonus activities, as well as Rhythm Kids videos to watch at home.
