This 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 4 -5 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!
