Rhythm Kids

Rhythm Kids is the next musical step for your preschool or elementary age child! Each week, participants will sing, dance, and play rhythm instruments and music-based games.

One of the hallmarks of the program is the inclusion of beginning drumming techniques, traditional drumming patterns, and building improvisation skills on drums and other rhythm instruments. As children participate in these developmentally appropriate music and movement activities, they gain confidence, take charge leading others, and strengthen their musical creativity. 

Rhythm Kids Level 1: ages 4-5*

Rhythm Kids Level 2: ages 5-8

*If you have a child who is a little older or younger than this age range and you are interested in starting in Level 1, contact us for a consultation.

* Weekly, 45-minute classes,

Babies

Music Together Babies Classes is the perfect chance to nurture a child's growth and music development within their first months of life. A born "sounder" and "mover," your baby is born with the potential to make music - we seek to build on that potential in class! During this one-semester introductory class, activities such as "purposeful touch" and "sound layering" are utilized with our song collections to teach families how to support music development.

Mixed Age Classes are for newborns and infants up to 8 months.
