Music Class for Big Kids

Eenie Meenie Music offers Rhythm Kids classes for kids 4-8 years old

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. We often use drums, but Rhythm Kids is much more than a drumming class. Students learn to compose, choreograph, and conduct as they play—and play with!—a variety of musical instruments and movement props: West African djembe drums, percussion instruments, scarves, stretchy bands, and, the most important instruments of all, their voices and their bodies. As your big kid learns to think and create like a musician, they’ll also build musical connections to each other- and 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

Enrolled families will receive:

  • 9-10 weekly, 45-minute classes (depending on the semester)

  • Animal Collection CD and Songbook, as well as downloads of all the songs we will be working on each semester

  • Access to online video tutorials and play-alongs

  • Access to online in-home activity pages

FALL '21: ALLIGATOR Collection

With the Alligator Collection, we'll learn four drumming patterns and we'll clap, stomp, and drum along to the lively beat of "Let Me Hear You" and do some zydeco line dancing in "Alligator Zydeco. "Alligator Slide" with its funky groove will give us a chance to experience a day in the life of an alligator. We'll also delight in sharing the song "Tue Tue," a Ghanaian children's singing game. All 18 selections in this collection have been chosen and arranged specifically to support your child's music development.
