Rhythm Kids® by Music Together® Outdoors
September 14-November 16
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!
We’re heading outdoors this fall, to take advantage of the beautiful fall weather and the opportunity to gather in person again. As we move into November we’ll plan to bundle up and spend a lot of time jumping and dancing! In case of inclement weather, our outdoor class will be offered online. UVMC will email by noon on the day of the class if the class is being called due to weather. Rained-out classes will not be rescheduled. Families enrolled in the outdoor class who miss a class can make it up in an online class.
Families should bring a blanket to class and stay on their blanket during class. There will be no shared instruments in outdoor classes.
Since children under 12 are not yet eligible for vaccination against COVID-19, vaccination will not be required to enroll in the in-person Music Together program. We highly encourage all eligible individuals to be vaccinated. In order to prioritize the safety of children who cannot be vaccinated — some of whom are too young to wear masks — we will require ALL participants 2 years of age and older to wear masks during class and to observe 3-foot distancing as much as possible.
Detailed health policies can be found on our COVID-19 page. Please review these and our Registration Policies before enrolling. If you have questions about our policies, please contact Erin Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org.

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).
