This is the main Music Together® class and a precursor to the Music Together Rhythm Kids class. It is one that a child can attend from birth through age four 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. Any caregivers - parents, grandparents, nanny, aunts or uncles - can bring the children. It is fun for the whole family.
Music Together Rhythm Kids Classes
Heldeberg Music Together is now offering Music Together Rhythm Kids, a great next step in your child’s musical adventure. Rhythm Kids Level 1 is the next musical step for your preschool child (ages 4 - 8) with a parent or caregiver. 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
• 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 eight.
Classes are for children ages 4 - 8 and include:
• 10 weekly, 45-minute classes (Summer 2020 will be online for 8-weeks)
• Animal Collection Songbook and 1 CDs each semester
• Access to online drum-play videos and other material from Music Together
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
Tuition will include a djembe drum to keep so that your child can practice at home.
