Rhythm Kids

Rhythm Kids 1 (4 & 5 yr olds) & Rhythm Kids 2 (K-2nd grade) 


Rhythm Kids Level 1 and Rhythm Kids Level 2 will be piloted a second year by Music Together in Phoenix.  Rhythm Kids is an exciting music, movement, and drumming class that follows through on Music Together®'s vision to help children complete the pathway of early childhood music development!  

 


 

Rhythm Kids Level 1 

Rhythm Kids Level 1 is the next musical step for your preschool child (ages 4-5) with a parent or caregiver.  Each week we drum, sing, play rhythm instruments, and begin to play music-based games.  Rhythm Kids 4-5 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;
  • and even take a drum solo!


Rhythm Kids 4-5 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 preschoolers ages 4-5; and include:

  • 10 weekly, 45 minute classes
  • Animal Collection Songbook and 2 CD's 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 the beat, improvising, ensemble play, and soloing
  • Learn to create, cooperate, and express themselves musically

Drums will be provided for the class each week (or you can bring your own).  Just add hands!

 

Rhythm Kids Level 2

Rhythm Kids Level 2 is an exciting music, movement, and drumming class for children in kindergarten through second grade (ages 5 though 8). Children will 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 & drumming;
  • have fun with a host of rhythm activities.
A vital part of the Rhythm Kids experience, children and their grownups can enjoy drumming play and practices sessions at home with the help of online play-along videos featuring Rhythm Kids creator Tom Foote.


 

Classes are for children K-2 (ages 5 through 8) and include:
  • Weekly 45-minute classes
  • Animal Collection Songbooks & CD's (2 copies) each semester
  • Access to online video tutorials and play-alongs

Children will:

  • Learn, create, discover and explore music, movement and drumming
  • Enjoy age-appropriate ways to play rhythm instruments (shakers, tambourines, etc.)
  • Experience drumming, songs, and dance from around the world (Mali, Puerto Rico, Turkey, etc)
  • Find new ways to connect mind, body and voice through rhythm
  • Develop skill in improvising, soloing, conducting, composition, and improvisation
  • Participate in active musical games that are both enriching and totally fun!
