Your child is at the age where she’s eager to take on new challenges and learn new skills. Five-, six-, seven-, and eight-year-olds are ready to lead musical activities with their peers. They want to dig deeper and understand how music works. That's what our Rhythm Kids music classes for big kids are all about.
Music Together® Rhythm Kids
Our Music Together classes for five- through eight-year-olds create a musical environment where your big kid can thrive. Challenging and fun music activities complement your child’s elementary school music curriculum or individual music lessons. Plus, your son or daughter will build life skills such as leadership, decision-making, and teamwork.
Through class activities like drumming, game songs, improvisation, composition, and conducting, your big kid will be well on his way to a lifetime of music-making.
We are absolutely thrilled to bring this fantastic program to our Ring-a-Ding Sing! families beginning Fall 2020! Our Rhythm Kids classes will be taught by Jessica Jensen, who has taught Music Together and elementary music in various settings for over ten years. Her energy and creative spirit are sure to engage and inspire your child (and you!). Your child will attend one 45-minute zoom class each week for ten weeks, and you are welcome to attend and participate with them! Families will also recieve a Songbook, CD, download code to unlock the songs and additional video content on the Hello Everybody app and the Family Music Zone, 15 minutes of additional pre-recorded Mixed Age class videos each week, and online bonus features such as play-alongs, parent education videos, bonus play-alongs, and DIY musical instrument craft videos. All additional video content will be available on-demand throughout the semester. In lieu of make-ups, all families will be able to sign up for as many as 10 Drop-Ins in our Mixed Age classes over the course of the semester, as space permits.
Rhythm Kids students are encouraged (but not required) to acquire a djembe (an African drum) for class. If you don't have one, you can always use a book, a bowl, or anything you can drum on! See our tuition page for resources to purchase a djembe with an exclusive discount for Rhythm Kids families. You can also rent a djembe from Ring-a-Ding Sing! for the course of the semester.
