Join us for the Maracas Collection this spring, beginning ONLINE March 30, 2020.
Unprecedented times call for challenging decisions, and after much care in consideration, I have decided to move forward with offering my spring session online via ZOOM, with the hopes of continuing in the classroom as soon as we are able.
I'm looking forward to having this opportunity to teach families what it REALLY looks like to make music at home.
The rich musical experience and the way the program is taught will remain the same. Changing platforms without stopping the train, if you will. We like to sing about trains a lot in Music Together classes!!

Classes for Big Kids 4–8 Years Old
Kids know what they like. Telling silly stories. Playing games. Being in charge. Designed specifically for pre-K and early elementary students, our active Rhythm Kids classes tap into how children this age are wired to learn, with music games, animal rhythm stories, and lots of stomping-flying-climbing fun.
Rhythm Kids is just the thing to get your child to (willingly) put down the iPad and start making music with their friends. By the end of the semester, they’ll be proud to show off what they’ve learned: to you, their friends and teachers, and—let’s face it—for some kids, every person they meet!
Rhythm Kids Classes
In each weekly music class, we drum, sing, move, and play to rhythms inspired by musical traditions around the world, from West African Gahu, to Japanese Taiko, to Brazilian Samba, just to name a few.
Students learn to compose, choreograph, and conduct as they play—and play with!—a variety of musical instruments: West African djembe drums, percussion instruments, and, the most important instruments of all, their voices and their bodies. As your child learns to think and create like a musician, they’ll also build musical connections to the global community. Classes include:
- immersion in the musical language of many cultures
- playful music games with rules
- opportunities to lead, balanced with opportunities to collaborate
- deep exposure to complex, fun, and rockin' music
- many chances to solo, improvise, and work in ensembles
- rich, creative experimentation and expression, improvisation, and innovation
Two types of Rhythm Kids classes are available: Level 1 for four- and five-year-olds in Pre-K, and Level 2 for kindergarteners, first-graders, and second-graders.
