Rhythm Kids is "what's next" for children who have aged beyond our Mixed Ages classes. This lively class offers our students plenty of opportunities to use their whole bodies - and their imaginations! - as we play our way through each activity. There are two levels available, Level 1 is designed for 4 and 5 year olds and Level 2 is for 5-8 year olds. We do a lot of singing, dancing, and drumming with Djembe drums throughout this 45 minute class experience and every student will have the chance to "take the lead" in a variety of activities at one point or another. Rhythm Kids participants receive a new set of take home materials every semester (these are different from the Nine Song Collections that are used in our Mixed Ages classes) to use for more music making at home during the week between class meetings. Drums are provided for classroom use and are also available to purchase for use at home. Rhythm Kids classes are scheduled after traditional school hours and are presented as an "optional drop off" experience, meaning that parents are invited to stay but are not required to do so.
