Rhythm Kids Level 1 is the next musical step for your big kid (ages 4–5 - prekinders) with a parent or caregiver. Each week we drum, sing, dance, play rhythm instruments, and begin to play music-based games. Rhythm Kids Level 1 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 Level 1 carries on the Music Together® vision to help children complete the pathway of early childhood music development from birth through age eight. Classes are for kiddos ages 4–5 and include:
  • 8 to 10 weekly, 45-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
Drums will be provided for the class each week, but if you’d like your child to have a drum to play with at home (and then continue to use in Level 2 classes!), please ask your teacher about the special discounts on djembe drums that are available to Music Together families.
 
Drop off in Level 1 is an option but most parents join and/or stay to watch. Level 2 is a drop off class.
