Mixed Age Family Class

A mixed age Family class is a community of families sharing songs, instrument play, rhythm chants, and movement activities in a relaxed, playful, non-performance-oriented setting. In this environment Music is learned through developmentally appropriate activities that support and respect the unique learning styles of very young children.

RHYTHM KIDS (ages 5-8)

Rhythm Kids is an exciting music, movement, and drumming class where children integrate and assimilate rhythm into their lives, as they:

* Learn, create, discover and explore music.

* Enjoy age-appropriate ways to play rhythm instruments (shakers, tambourines, etc.)

* Explore traditional drumming patterns through animal names and movements.

* Experience drumming, song and dance from around the world (Mail, Puerto Rico, Turkey, Syria, etc.)

* Find new ways to connect mind, body, and voice through rhythm.

RHYTHM KIDS STUDENTS WILL NEED THEIR OWNN "DRUM" TO USE AT HOME.  A djembe is preferred, but any hand drum will work, so please use what you can find.  There are drums available on Amazon or you may purchase a drum from Djembe Direct and use the code RHYTHMKIDS to receive a 5% discount. Shipping is FREE.
