Mixed Ages (ages 0-5)
This is the essential Music Together® class, one that a child can attend from birth through age five through all nine song collections. This basic class follows the recommendations of child development researchers grouping children of a variety of ages because this fosters natural, family-style learning. Younger children enjoy watching and imitating older ones; older children learn by leading younger ones; and adults are happy because the children in the family can go to class together. Each child participates at his or her own level in singing, moving, chanting, listening, watching, or exploring musical instruments. Any caregivers, parents, grandparents, nanny can bring the children. The whole family is welcome to join this important music experience!
Rhythm Kids K-2 (ages 5 through 8):
Rhythm Kids K2 is an exciting music, movement, and drumming class for children in Kindergarten through second grade (ages 5 through 8). Children integrate and assimilate rhythm into their lives as they;
- experience drumming, songs, and dances from around the world (Mali, Puerto Rico,Turkey, etc.)
- learn multicultural drumming patterns on djembes
- enhance their ability to integrate dancing and singing
- develop skill in improvising, soloing, conducting, composition, and improvisation
- play challenging, developmentally-appropriate, fun music games focused on building skill in rhythm and drumming
Rhythm Kids 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 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. Rhythm Kids is currently only offered in our West Seattle location.
