Play Music Play Rhythm" is a comprehensive rhythm/beats training program that is exclusively designed for toddlers and young musicians. The core of our program is the fundamental concept of keeping a steady beat which is absolutely essential in learning a musical instrument and in musicianship development.
The ability to keep a steady beat is also connected with fluency in reading. A study by Phyllis Weikert showed that being “able to keep a steady beat helps a person to feel the cadence (rhythm) of language” and can also affect their sense of equilibrium.
What makes this program special?
This program is designed for children to learn music with their natural instincts. We use words, songs, and body movements that children can easily associate with - like walking, running, and taking a deep breath. Each movement represents a type of beat. This makes learning music easy even for children as young as 2 years old.
In our 16 classes, you and your child will learn 9 of the most common music notations, how to clap/count them individually and eventually create their own music rhythm patterns as part of learning how to read and write music.
Here's what we do in our classes -
Learn how to count beats
Sing rhythmic songs
Use dance & body movements to connect with the music
Learn to recognize and draw musical notations
Create your own rhythm patterns
Have fun together!
