Our Classes

We are taking registrations for upcoming classes now!

Weekly 45-minute classes include songs, rhythmic chants, movement, and instrument play. These activities are presented as informal, non-performance-oriented musical experiences--developmentally appropriate for children and easy for parents and caregivers--regardless of their own musical ability. 

Mixed Age Class: A family-style learning experience designed for children ages 0-5 and their caregivers. Each week will include a variety of experiences including singing, chanting, dancing, and playing instruments. 

Rhythm Kids™ Level 1 (NEW!): The next musical step for your 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. 

 

Below is our schedule of upcoming classes:

Mixed Age

Mixed age classes are designed for children ages birth through five and their caregivers. Classes include a variety of singing, chanting, instrument playing and movement. 

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, 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 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
