Rhythm Kids Level 2 is an exciting music, movement, and drumming class for children in kindergarten through second grade (ages 4.5 through 8). Children will integrate and assimilate rhythm into their lives, as they:

develop new repertoire on various percussion instruments;
explore movement and dance while singing songs;
play games based on music & drumming;

A vital part of the Rhythm Kids experience, children and their grownups can enjoy drumming play and practices sessions at home with the help of online play-along videos featuring Rhythm Kids creator Tom Foote.
