RHYTHM KIDS 

Rhythm Kids is a new drumming, music, and movement, program for children ages 4–5. Classes naturally support children’s rhythm development and help them prepare for formal music lessons. Rhythm Kids Level 1 classes are for 4- to 5-year-old preschoolers.  In this class, children play dynamic musical games, work in ensembles, explore solo singing and drumming, a.nd experiment with conducting and improvisation using a repertoire of well-loved Music Together® songs, plus new material adapted from or inspired by drumming traditions from around the world, including Ghana, Ireland, and Bali.

Mixed Age Family Class

Our children’s music classes are just that—and more. Playful, rich, and engaging, Music Together helps children of all ages—babies, toddlers, preschoolers, and big kids—discover their inner music-maker by playing with the grownups they love. Our kids’ music and movement classes also offer other important benefits. It turns out that music for children also supports overall early childhood development.

Mixed Age - Family Class

Thank you for your interest in our classes!

As a family in one of our classes, you and your child will have the opportunity to play musically each week under the guidance of one of our early childhood music specialists. During class, you will sing and move to songs and rhythmic rhymes in a variety of meters and tonalities by participating in activities that include small and large movement, instrument play-alongs and community singing. These fun activities are presented as informal, non-performance-oriented musical experiences that are developmentally appropriate for children and easy for parents and caregivers to participate in regardless of their own musical ability! In addition to the fun you will have in class, you will receive two professionally recorded CDs and a beautifully-illustrated songbook so you can continue the music-making fun at home. Families new to Music Together® will also receive our “Music Together at Home: Helping Your Child Grow Musically” parent DVD.

We look forward to singing and dancing with you soon!
