Rhythm Kids Music Classes for Big Kids

​In each weekly music class, we drum, sing, move, and play to rhythms inspired by musical traditions around the world, from West African Gahu, to Japanese Taiko, to Brazilian Samba, just to name a few.

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. 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

​Music Learning Supports All Learning®

​Whether as a stand-alone music class or as a companion to private lessons, Rhythm Kids helps children develop the facility, repertoire, mastery, and creativity to be confident music students and music-makers throughout their lives. Plus, kids gain valuable skills they’ll take with them to the elementary school classroom (and beyond!). The music and movement activities support growth in several key developmental areas and naturally motivate kids to focus and engage.

Read what parents have to say about Music Together's Rhythm Kids classes:

​“I truly credit this amazing programming with giving my daughter’s innate musicality a formal grounding. . . Not to mention the other developmental benefits she has received!”

​- Rhythm Kids® Parent

​“I'm a piano teacher with a private studio, and Rhythm Kids feels so right to me. It's building musicians first. The play-based approach, the internalizing of the concepts by repetitive, fun, social music-making . . . is key! I'm changing my whole studio philosophy to embrace and encourage this type of musical instruction for newborn to 8 before beginning formal lessons with me.”

​- Piano Instructor
