Children’s Introduction to Rhythm

Give your kids the foundations for musical success.

Music gives children focus, determination, and makes them feel like they are part of something. On top of that, it’s a great way to burn off some energy!

This workshop is for 5 to 10 year olds, and is a general introduction to percussion, featuring rhythm games and body percussion. Students will explore the use of various hand instruments, and learn how to create basic rhythms within an ensemble setting. A great way to build teamwork and collaboration!
