The Rhythm Kids curriculum guides children ages 4-8 toward developmentally appropriate music and movement activities where they can begin to take charge, lead others, and grow more musically creative, as they make up their own drumming patterns, invent new ways to play rhythm instruments, create movement ideas for songs and even 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 eight.
When you enroll, you will receive a professionally recorded CD, an accompanying songbook including a unique digital code to download the music and access short, age-appropriate virtual drum lesson videos with program creator Tom Foote through our Hello Everybody app. You’ll also receive an invitation to our private Facebook group exclusively for families enrolled in our program with bonus at-home activities and inspiration to keep the music-making going throughout your week.
For children new to Rhythm Kids, tuition includes a Toca Colorsound djembe, an appropriately sized djembe drum for use in and out of class. If you already own a drum that would be appropriate for your child to play at home, you can select the tuition rate specifying that no drum is needed. Please contact our center director for guidance.
Rhythm Kids will be the highlight of your week as we sing, dance and drum together right in your own home! We will share in a rich music learning experience while having a much-needed outlet for creativity, movement and FUN the rhythmic patterns and songs of the current collection, named after a different animal each semester. There will be special activity practice videos, downloadable Rhythm Kids worksheets, game ideas and more. You will also have access to all the content we post to our private Facebook group, so there will be no shortage of musical content to absorb and inspire you!
