This 45-minute class for 4- and 5-year-olds was designed to be a drum- and rhythm-centered variation of the Parent/Child class that serves as a transition to the Level 2 program. Focusing on drumming and rhythm helps the children to begin to hone their attention to the details of music. Each semester focuses on a specific animal with rhythm patterns from that animal's region of the world. Through these songs, the children are exposed to a broad variety of language, rhythm, and tonalities. Rhythm patterns are played in class each week with various musical movement games. Parents will attend the class as a partner to their child, and the children are encouraged to play-along at home with the online drumming videos. This class is $170 per semester, which includes all the materials. There is a three child minimum and eight child maximum for the class.
