Rhythm Kids innovative approach

Children will be learning to play real drumming patterns from many places in the world, made accessible by first learning them through spoken rhymes with animal themes.

Designed specifically for pre-K and early elementary students, Rhythm Kids classes tap into how children this age are wired to learn, with music games, rhythmic stories and lots of high energy stomping-flying-climbing fun.


Students will compose, choreograph, and conduct using djembe drums, their voices and their bodies. They will have opportunities to lead their peers, solo and improvise. While learning to think and create like a musician, they’ll also build musical connections to the global community by learning rhythms inspired by musical traditions around the world, from West African Gahu, to Japanese Taiko, to Brazilian Samba.

Rhythm Kids helps children develop the facility, repertoire, mastery, and creativity to be confident students. The music and movement activities support growth in several key developmental areas and naturally motivate kids to focus and engage.


Rhythm and tonal competence

Composing, conducting, & choreographing

Independent singing

Confidence in movement

Creative musical expression


Leadership and social skills

Executive functions

Emerging math skills

Creative problem-solving

Cultural exposure & appreciation

Classes are 45 minutes, weekly for 10 weeks on interactive online platform called Webex. 

Small Learning pods or coops may join existing RK classes or request a private class if approximately 10 families enroll. Students participate while together in person, with the teacher virtual, or if they are at home, they can join from home that day.


Each student receives a Rhythm Kids songbook, CD/digital access through the app, and access to interactive online video drumming tutorials. 

Tuition is $160 per family, no registration fees! 

Families with children enrolled in Music Together and Rhythm Kids will be discounted $50.
