In this ten-week music class for kids 4-9 years old we drum, sing, move, and play to rhythms inspired by musical traditions worldwide, from West African Gahu to Japanese Taiko to Brazilian Samba just to name a few.
The Tree Frog Collection will be featured this winter!Students learn to compose, choreograph, and conduct as they play—and play with!—a variety of musical instruments: West African djembe drums, percussion instruments, and, the most important instruments of all, their voices and their bodies. As your big kid learns to think and create like a musician, they’ll also build musical connections to the global community. Grown-ups get to jump in and participate, learning rhythms, singing and chanting along, and helping to inspire a love of music-making in their children's lives. Rhythm Kids classes are a wonderful option for kids who love music, whether they just want to play with us or whether they hope to study musical instruments in the future. Participation in Rhythm Kids classes provides building blocks for understanding music that will serve students well regardless of their long-term goals! Classes include:
- immersion in the musical language of many cultures
- playful music games with rules
- opportunities to lead balanced with opportunities to collaborate
- deep exposure to complex, fun, and rockin' music
- many chances to solo, improvise, and work in ensembles
- rich, creative experimentation and expression, improvisation, and innovation
Child development researchers have known for a long time that the natural, family-style environment of mixed-age classes is the best way for young children to learn. In our experience, it works! In all of our classes, we include mixed-age groups - the older children love to show what they know, and the younger ones love to watch and imitate. The relaxed, no-pressure environment lets all kids learn at their own pace.
Siblings (between 4 and 9 years old) may attend for a discounted rate with a registered sibling.
