JOIN US FOR THE ALLIGATOR COLLECTION!
"Hey, Hey, Wha' D'Ya Say!" It's time to get ready for some serious fun this fall with the Alligator Song Collection! You'll be "Singin' Every Day" as we do the "Alligator Slide." Come look for a "Butterfly" in the "Shady Grove" and invite your "Mississippi Cats" to dance to the "Alligator Zydeco." "Let Me Hear You" sing that "Walking Song!" "Can you do this?" Sure you can! It's all happening in a Rhythm Kids class near you!
The Alligator Rhythm includes drumming patterns from Kakilambe, a dance song which the Baga people of Guinea perform annually to celebrate life and the growth of crops. We’ll get to try it out ourselves in “Kakilambe.” We’ll clap, stomp, and drum along to the lively beat of “Let Me Hear You” and even do some zydeco line dancing in “Alligator Zydeco.” And “Alligator Slide” will give us a chance to experience a day in the wonderful life of an alligator. All 18 selections in this collection have been chosen and arranged specifically to support each student’s music development.

Rhythm Kids is geared for preschoolers, ages 4-5, who are ready to take their next musical step. Utilizing the Music Together® curriculum each week, we drum, sing, dance, play rhythm instruments, and begin to play music-based games. PreRhythm Kids guides children toward developmentally appropriate music and movement activities, where they can begin to take charge, lead others, and be musically creative, as they:
· make up their own drumming patterns
· invent new ways to play rhythm instruments (shakers, sticks, etc.)
· create movement ideas for songs
· and even take a drum solo!
Utilizing the Music Together curriculum, preRhythm Kids follows through on the Music Together® vision to help children complete the pathway of early childhood music development from birth through age eight.
Classes are for preschoolers ages 4–5 and include:
· 10 weekly, 45-minute classes
· Songbook and 2 CDs each semester
· Access to online drum-play videos and other material
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 will be provided for the class each week. Just add hands!
A drum for home use and practice is HIGHLY recommended. Please talk to us about what size and brand would work well for home use. We also have drums for sale.
