Young drummers jam with rhythms from around the world on congas, djembes, small hand percussion instruments and drum-sets. Students learn rhythmic notation, beat-keeping skills and how to vocalize rhythms. Through movement, singing, improvisation and music games, students develop hand-eye coordination, memorization skills, listening skills and body awareness.

Instrument Friends

In the Community Music School, we encourage our youngest learners to join these engaging group classes, where the low student-to-teacher ratio ensures that students get both individual attention and support from their peers. At this age, students are naturally curious about how instruments create melodies and rhythms. Instrument Friends classes capitalize on this interest to teach essential musical elements such as basic reading, notation and instrumental technique, which are stepping stones toward formal private lessons. At the end of each 15-week semester, students perform in a group recital, building confidence and performance skills that prepare them for private lessons.
