Rhythm Kids is the next musical step for your big kid (ages 4–5 - prekinders, and 1st and 2nd graders). Each week we drum, sing, dance, play rhythm instruments, and begin to play music-based games. Rhythm Kids guides children toward developmentally appropriate activities where they can begin to take charge, lead others, and be musically creative, as they:
  • make up their own drumming patterns
  • invent new ways to play rhythm instruments (shakers, sticks, etc.)
  • create movement ideas for songs
  • even take a drum solo!
 
Rhythm Kids carries on the Music Together® vision to help children complete the pathway of early childhood music development from birth through age eight. 
  • weekly, 30-minute classes 
  • Songbook, CD, dowload and the Hello Everybody app 
  • Access to online drum-play videos and other support material
 
Children will:
  • Explore the world of rhythm through movement, instrument play, and song
  • Develop basic rhythm skills, like keeping beat, improvising, ensemble play, and soloing
  • Learn to create, cooperate, and express themselves musically
Djembe drums are recommended for all Rhythm Kids classes - purchase from Mindy's Musikids or email us about renting a djembe.
