Rhythm class for 4 to 7 years old
WINTER 2024 registration - Ongoing

Our Rhythm Kids classes are just the thing to get your child to (willingly) put down the iPad and start making music with their friends. Designed specifically for pre-K and early elementary students, these active classes tap into how children this age are wired to learn, with music games, animal rhythm stories, and lots of stomping-flying-climbing fun. 

In each weekly class, your child will drum, sing, move, and play to rhythms inspired by musical traditions around the world, from West African Gahu, to Japanese Taiko, to Brazilian Samba, to name a few. As they learn to think and create like a musician, they’ll also gain valuable skills they’ll take to the elementary school classroom (and beyond!): confidence, focus, leadership, cognitive flexibility, and more. By the end of the semester, your child will be eager to show off what they’ve learned!

Join us for the Elephant collection this Winter

The Elephant Rhythm features triple-meter drumming patterns inspired by the traditional social dance from Mali known as Suku. We'll enjoy dramatic play in "Elephant Stampede," and choreographed dancing and drumming in "Music Everywhere." We'll also learn a Gaelic children's song called "Dilín ó Deamhas" and, of course, have a blast doing "The Elephant Dance"! All the songs in this collection have been chosen and arranged specifically to support each student's music development.
