- Animal Collection Songbook and CDs & music download each semester

For Summer: The Kangaroo Rhythm features drumming patterns inspired by the Australian didgeridoo. We'll learn a traditional song and "sit-down dance" from the Torres Strait Islanders called "Taba Naba"; and with "Hand in Hand," we'll explore body percussion and sing a three-part round. We'll jam and solo-sing to the reggae beat of "Every Day's a Good Day" and, of course, have lots of fun moving like "Krazy Kangarooz"! All 18 songs in this collection have been chosen and arranged specifically to support each student's music development.
For Fall: This Hippo song collection will feature drumming patterns, a song, and folk dance from Ghana! Also a beautiful song from the Andes region (Peru), and the super fun song hip hop hippo. Several selections from the Music Together flute collection will include Hey Lolly, Ran Tin Tinah, and Shake Those 'Simmons Down, just to name a few! In addition to your weekly classes, tuition includes a new songbook, along with online access to the music and bonus activities, as well as Rhythm Kids videos to watch at home.
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
Drums are included in tuition because we feel it is important that your child have a drum to play with at home. If you would like to purchase a larger drum ask us about the special discounts on djembe drums that are available to Music Together families.
**If you have a djembe drum already - please contact the office prior to registration for a price adjustment.
**If you have a request for a certain day or time frame for a class please let us know. This class is also available to homeschool children.
