Rhythm Kids is an exciting music, movement and drumming class for children ages 4-5 and 5 through 7 (K- 2nd grade). 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
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.
