Rhythm Kids™ by Music Together® (Ages 4-8)

  • Rhythm Kids Logo to Sing, Dance, and Drum Rhythm Kids™ is an exciting music, movement, and drumming class where children integrate and assimilate rhythm into their lives. Your child will sing, dance, move, drum, and play to songs and beats from around the world. Rhythm Kids™ is proud to be a part of Music Together®, the internationally recognized early childhood music education program. Rhythm Kids™ classes for children Level 1 (ages 4-6) and Level 2 (grades K-2) are currently being piloted in select centers around the United States.

    Rhythm Kids™ Level 1 is the next musical step for your preschool child (ages 4-6) with a parent or caregiver. Each week we drum, sing, dance, play rhythm instruments and begin to play music-based games. Rhythm Kids™ Level 1 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
    • Even take a drum solo!

    Rhythm Kids™ Level 2 is an exciting music, movement, and drumming class for children in Kindergarten through Second Grade (ages 5-8). Children integrate and assimilate rhythm into their lives as they:

    • Learn multicultural drumming patterns
    • Develop new repertoire on various percussion instruments
    • Explore movement and dance while singing songs
    • Play games based on music and drumming
    • Have fun with a host of rhythm activities

    CDs, songbook, and digital download of music are included.

    This program is open to Roxbury and non-Roxbury residents.

She teaches parent-child classes, MT Preschool (in French and English) classes, baby classes, and Rhythm Kids classes too! She plays the piano and the autoharp in class. She is a very happily married and has two grown children, Danielle and Martin that keep her organized and broke (in that order).
