Rhythm Kids™




Rhythm Kids™ Level I (ages 4-5 yrs with parent/caregiver)


Rhythm Kids Level I is the next musical step for your preschool child (ages 4–5) with a parent or caregiver. Each week we drum, sing, dance, play rhythm instruments, and begin to play music-based games. Rhythm Kids 4-5 guides children toward developmentally appropriate music and movement 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;

• and even take a drum solo!


Rhythm Kids Level I follows through on the Music Together® vision to help children complete the pathway of early childhood music development from birth through age eight.


Classes are for preschoolers ages 4–5 and include:

• 10 weekly, 45-minute classes

• Animal Collection Songbook and 2 CDs each semester

• Access to online drum-play videos and other material


Your child 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 (or you can bring your own). Just add hands!


Due to the specific activities designed for our registered Rhythm Kids, younger siblings cannot attend this class.

We've found Rhythm Kids to be the perfect progression from the Mixed Ages class - and a total blast! It's so much fun to sing and use the djembe drums, plus some of our favorite instruments from before like bells and sticks. It's exciting to hear both familiar Music Together songs and brand new ones. Watching my son during and outside of class, I could see his understanding of rhythm advancing even after only a few classes.


The Allen family



Lily (5YO) feels so proud to "be a Rhythm Kid." She knows that I take Lulu to Music Together and Lily loves to talk about how she gets to go alone to the more grown-up class, play the djembes that are kept on the special shelf, have different "Hello" and "Goodbye" songs, and practice rhythms on her drum at home. Rhythm Kids is a wonderful opportunity for the school-age crowd to return to (or experience for the first time) the fun, silliness, and educational value of the Music Together program!
