Mixed Ages

This is the essential Music Together class, one that a child can attend from birth through age five through all nine song collections. This basic class follows the recommendations of child development researchers—grouping children of a variety of ages because this fosters natural, family-style learning. Younger children enjoy watching and imitating older ones; older children learn by leading younger ones; and adults are happy because the children in the family can go to class together. Each child participates at his or her own level in singing, moving, chanting, listening, watching, or exploring musical instruments. Any caregivers—parents, grandparents, nanny—can bring the children. The whole family is welcome  to join this important music experience!

Rhythm Kids Level 1

Rhythm Kids Level 1 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 Level 1 guides children toward developmentally appropriate music and movement activities, where they can begin to take charge, lead others, and be musically creative.

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. Each class 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; and much more!

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.

Rhythm Kids Level 2

Rhythm Kids Level 2 is an exciting music, movement, and drumming class for children in Kindergarten through second grade (ages 5 through 8). Children integrate and assimilate rhythm into their lives, as they learn multicultural drumming patterns; develop new repertoire on various percussion instruments; explore movement and dance while singing songs; play games based on music and drumming; have fun with a host of rhythm activities.

Rhythm Kids carries on the Music Together® vision to help children complete the pathway of early childhood music development from birth through age 8. As part of the Rhythm Kids experience, children will learn, create, discover and explore music, movement and drumming; enjoy age-appropriate ways to play rhythm instruments (shakers, tambourines, etc.); explore traditional drumming patterns through animal names and movements; experience drumming, song, and dance from around the world (Mali, Puerto Rico, Turkey, etc.); find new ways to connect mind, body, and voice through rhythm; develop skill in improvising, soloing, conducting, composition, and improvisation; participate in active musical games that are both enriching and totally fun!

 To get the most out of class, Level 2 students will need a drum. We have secured discounts for our students through certain retailers. Ask your teacher for a list of websites and discount codes.
