Music Together Online: Rhythm Kids Level 1 Summer Camp
In this virtual “camp” experience, kids ages 5-8 and a parent or caregiver are invited to explore the world of rhythm through our Tree Frog Song Collection! This collection draws on songs and rhythms from Japan as well as some Puerto Rican and Cuban influences. Participation will include small and large movement, dancing, drumming, instrument play, and singing. Kids will enjoy inventing new ways to play with rhythmic instruments such as shakers, sticks and of course, drums! Skills developed include keeping a steady beat, improvisation, understanding melody and harmony, and solo opportunities. Families will receive a songbook, recordings, access to digital content, membership in a private Facebook group for enrolled families to encourage and build community as well as bonus activities and crafts to do at home that deepen our understanding of the music and culture represented in the Tree Frog Song Collection. This camp experience meets three times virtually per week for two weeks in a row, culminating in one in-person drumming and dancing event (with appropriate social distancing of course)!
