In Music Together parents and their children experience songs, rhythmic rhymes, movement, and instrument play in a community centered environment. These activities are presented as informal, non-performance-oriented musical experiences–developmentally appropriate for children and easy for parents and caregivers–regardless of their own musical ability. Mixed Age Classes are for children 5 years and younger.

Rhythm Kids is the next musical step for your preschool or elementary age child! Each week, participants will sing, dance, and play rhythm instruments and music-based games. One of the hallmarks of the program is the inclusion of beginning drumming techniques, traditional drumming patterns, and building improvisation skills on drums and other rhythm instruments. As children participate in these developmentally appropriate music and movement activities, they gain confidence, take charge leading others, and strengthen their musical creativity.
