ABOUT THE RHYTHM TREE
Melbourne's beloved family music school
Growing a harmonious, musical world
It starts with the understanding that music is a natural and highly important life skill and that all children can learn to sing, dance and make music as easily as they can learn to walk and talk, provided their early music environment is sufficiently rich.
The best start to a lifelong love of music
Imagine having the highest quality musical experience in a playful, nurturing and pressure-free environment.
Imagine highly trained and passionate teachers who understand the way your young child learns.
Imagine an inclusive space where your child’s individual learning styles are embraced and they are encouraged to blossom in their own unique way.
Imagine being given the inspiration and the tools to bring the joy of music into your everyday lives.
Experience the Music Together curriculum, which includes an award-winning mix of original songs and traditional tunes from a range of musical styles, including folk, blues, jazz, and world music. The music is pitched just right for your child’s voices, and the arrangements are fun, sophisticated and loved by both children and grownups!
The Music Together songs are organised into collections of twenty-five songs, with three collections taught each year. Your family is welcome to join us at any time.. Many families cycle back and re-experience the collections as their children turn three or four. Because music-learning is cumulative, your children will experience developmental benefits that build over time.
Some of these songs are revisited during Rhythm Kids in special ‘animal collection’ as well as many new songs and drumming patterns from around the world.
