Rhythm class for 4 to 7 years old
Kids know what they like. For four- through eight-year-olds, it's telling silly stories, playing games (with rules, of course!), and sharing new things. Our interactive Rhythm Kids Online classes tap into how big kids are wired to learn. Music games, rhythm pattern play, drumming, and more engage their creativity—and inspire them to explore their musicality in new ways, both during and outside class. (No promises, but you just might find your child making music instead of watching YouTube!)
During each weekly, high-energy class, kids have a blast singing, dancing, and jamming to rhythms and tunes inspired by musical traditions around the world. Their specially trained teacher leads group and individual activities that get students up and moving as they learn to compose, choreograph, and conduct. Bonus: The music and movement activities naturally support several key developmental areas, including executive function, emerging math skills, and leadership.
In the Toucan Collection, we’ll explore the Toucan Rhythm featuring drumming patterns from Brazil, as heard on “In Rio.” Children will discover the fun of Samba music and dancing with the song “Sambalale”—and even learn to sing a verse in Portuguese! We’ll sing and move to “Wang Boto e Kong,” a beautiful song about a boat from Suriname. And, of course, we will sing, hop, and fly like Toucans over the rainforests of South America as we sing and drum along to “Two Toucans.”
