Music classes for 4-8 year olds

Big kids know what they like. Telling silly stories. Playing games. Being in charge. Designed specifically for 4-year-old Kinder through to Grade 2, Rhythm Kids classes tap into how children in this age group are wired to learn, with musical games, animal rhythm stories and lots of stomping-flying-climbing-dancing fun. 

Rhythm Kids classes are split into two levels:

  • Level 1 – 4-year-old Kinder and Foundation/Prep 
  • Level 2 – Grades 1 and 2

Children attend weekly 45 minute classes (either in-person or online). Families receive a new Music Together song collection in high res digital audio with an illustrated songbook and CD every 13-week trimester. Parents’ attendance during class is optional. 

We follow the award winning Music Together curriculum which includes a blend of folk, blues, jazz and world music. Our music is pitched specifically for children’s voices, the rhythm patterns and arrangements are fun, sophisticated and loved by children all over the world. 

We offer a flexible booking system – so if you can’t make it to class one week – you can book a makeup class pending availability with either of our Rhythm Kids teachers.

Rhythm Kids and their families also gain access to The Family Tree House on Facebook, a safe space where our teachers post extra video content and families can connect with each other, gain inspiration and share stories about joyful music making at home. Family Tree House content is also accessible via our website for families who don’t use Facebook.
