Drumming and music classes offered online, outdoors, and indoors for Children ages 4-8.
What is Rhythm Kids® ?
Rhythm Kids® is an immersive, experiential music education program in which children ages 4–8 years complete primary music development (and attain Basic Music Competence) and enter what might be called “secondary music development.” In this stage, children develop Applied Music Competence— through drumming, movement, and singing—and begin their journey to basic/ functional music literacy.
Rhythm Kids classes follow the best-practices, whole-child, educational approach recommended for children through age 8, where learning is scaffolded within a play-based, musical community. A drum is the ideal “first instrument”—its inherent accessibility offers deep layers of learning, and the “cool factor” gives children
the desire to play, opening the door to experiencing a sense of accomplishment quickly. As children explore drumming patterns and songs from around the world, they learn about music, develop confidence as autonomous music makers, and discover how rhythm connects us all.
Come ROAARRRR! With the Tiger Collection!
In the upcoming Tiger Collection, our class will playfully prowl, growl, and pounce like tigers as we explore unique drumming patterns based on rhythms from Mali and India. With songs from Southern India (“Chandamaama Raave,”) Catalonia (“Don Alfredo baila,”) South Africa (“Husha My Baby,”) China (“The Love Song of Kangding,”) and more, children will discover and learn songs in a broad range of styles, from diverse cultures, and in several languages, even Telugu, the enchanting, lilting language of Southern India. We’ll explore body percussion, scatting, and part-singing (“Singing in Harmony,” “Husha My Baby,” “Spin and Stop,”) and children will delight in imaginative play, drumming, and dancing with this rich, eclectic collection of songs and chants. Tuition includes our Tiger Collection recording (digital and CD), songbook, and access to drumming videos with Rhythm Kids creator Tom Foote.
