A program for Kids ages 4 years-2nd grade!

This SUMMER, Rhythm Kids will be ONLINE with

Tree Frog Collection!

The Tree Frog Collection contains energetic triple-meter rhythms inspired by Japanese Taiko drumming. We’ll explore these patterns in “Suzume Odori” (Sparrow Dance). We’ll learn a delightful Japanese hand-clapping game with “Tree Frog Song,” and play with  “Canta Coqui” (Singing Frog), which evokes the abundant Puerto Rican tree frogs singing and hopping everywhere! “Tree Frog Night” will give us a chance to experience a night in the life of a tree frog! All 18 song selections have been chosen and arranged specifically to support your child’s music development.

Introducing... Rhythm Kids!

Wow! 

   There are two Rhythm Kids   classes, one for 4- and 5-year-olds, and one for Kindergarten-2nd graders. (That means a 5-year-old who has not yet started K would take Rhythm Kids Level 1, and a 5-year-old who has started K could be in either class.) 

   Both classes are 45 minutes, and parents/caregivers are encouraged to stay and participate with their children, but whether parents stay is up to each individual family.

   These classes are for children 4 years old and older. Siblings can attend class together, but siblings under 4 years old are not developmentally ready for the structure of Rhythm Kids classes; therefore, except for babies seven months and younger, only children in the specified age range and their adults may attend. No previous music experience is required.

   Note: Kids in Rhythm Kids Level 2 class will need a drum. Please see * below.

       Please read below for more information on each class...

Rhythm Kids Level 1 ...

   (offered in Santa Rosa on Thursdays at 3:00) is the next musical step for your preschool child (ages 4–5). Parents or caregivers are welcome to stay in class with a child, or drop off the child for class. It's up to each family. 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

  • and even take a drum solo!

 

   Rhythm Kids Level 1 follows through on the Music Together vision to help children complete the pathway of early childhood music development from birth through age 8.

 

Classes are for preschoolers ages 4–5 and include:

  • 10 weekly, 45-minute classes

  • Animal Collection Songbook and 2 CDs each semester

  • Access to online drum-play videos and other material

 

Your child will:

  • Explore the world of rhythm through movement, instrument play, and song

  • Develop basic rhythm skills, like keeping beat, improvising, ensemble play, and soloing

  • Learn to create, cooperate, and express themselves musically

 

   Drums will be provided for the class each week (or you can bring your own). Just add hands!

Rhythm Kids Level 2 ...

   (offered in Santa Rosa on Thursdays at 4:00) is an exciting music, movement, and drumming class for children in Kindergarten through second grade (ages 5 through 8).

NOTE: The Level 2 students need their own hand drum for home (and for use in class— please check with Ginger). When registering, you can choose a pricing option that includes a djembe drum for your child (at only $36 for the drum)!

   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

 

   Rhythm Kids Level 2 follows through on the Music Together vision to help children complete the pathway of early childhood music development from birth through age 8.

 

   As part of the Rhythm Kids Level 2 experience, children and their grownups can enjoy drumming play and practice sessions at home with the help of online play-along videos featuring Rhythm Kids creator Tom Foote.

   Classes are for K- 2nd grade children (ages 5 through 8) and include:

  • 10 weekly, 45-minute classes

  • Animal Collection Songbook and CDs (2 copies) each semester

  • Access to online video tutorials and play-alongs

 

   Children will:

  • Learn, create, discover and explore music, movement and drumming

  • 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 (Mali, Puerto Rico, Turkey, etc.)

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

  • Develop skill in improvising, soloing, conducting, composition, and improvisation

  • Participate in active musical games that are both enriching and totally fun!
