Class Descriptions

Show classes for:
Mixed

Mixed-age classes are aimed at children from ages 0 through 5 (with some flexibility on the upper age). The relaxed family-style setting helps all the participants, including the caregivers, have fun!

Baby

 Classes just for young infants (8months and under). The music activities and materials are especially designed to meet the needs of parents with non-mobile babies who nevertheless benefit so much from daily music experiences!  Once you have completed a session of infant classes you and your child will move into the mixed-aged classes. Infants are FREE of charge in a mixed-age class with an older paid sibling.

 

 

 

 

Rhythm Kids Online

Rhythm Kids Online

The logical "next step" in musical development after Mixed Ages classes! For ages 4-7. Djembe drum encouraged, but a box or tabletop works too! Tuition includes a weekly 30 minute Zoom class, recorded for on demand viewing, plus a weekly pre-recorded class, songbook, CD and digital downloads,  and an invitation to our end of semester Zoom Dance Party. 

 Rhythm Kids Online 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!


    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
