Rhythm Kids® by Music Together®

Winter 2022: January 19-March 23
Spring 2022: April 6 or 19 - June 8
Wednesdays 4 pm or Tuesdays 1:30 pm

Drum, sing, and dance!  In Rhythm Kids® classes, students explore rhythm by playing with music from around the world in weekly, 45-minute classes.  Music Together-trained teachers lead dynamic classroom activities designed especially for preschoolers and early elementary students, and the discovery continues at home with the interactive Rhythm Kids videos, easily viewable on the Music Together “Hello Everybody” app.

As they drum, sing, and move to new rhythms, children naturally build musicality that helps them prepare for formal music lessons.  Opportunities to solo, work in ensembles, and improvise also support social and listening skills, self-expression, and self-confidence.  Save a spot for your big kid today!

Note On Ages

Rhythm Kids activities will be pedagogically aimed at the developmental needs of this targeted age group (4-6 years old) and the teacher will not be able to adjust to accommodate younger children’s needs. For a multi-aged interactive experience that incorporates younger children, we encourage families to consider the Music Together Online Mixed-Age class.

If you have multiple children in the 4-6 age range, please register each child using the sibling discount. We ask that you attend only with the child in that age range and not bring along younger siblings (excluding infants-in-arms, who are always welcome).
