Increase the depth of learning through our residency programs. Rhythm Kids offers residencies that can be as long, or as short, as you would like and can be adapted to meet the overall objective of your school.
Drum & Dance Residency:
An absolutely wonderful program where we journey through several African countries and learn songs, dances and complete drumming arrangements along the way. Children can immerse themselves in learning more about countries and we can adjust this to accommodate different ages or combined ages. We can work with your art teacher(s) to create costumes, jewelry and props (masks, etc.) that will broaden the scope of learning. One school put this all together and did two shows; one for their younger grades (preschooler and parents) and another for the parents and the community--it was AMAZING!!
Artist In-Residence:We can bring the staff to you for an extended amount of drumming with in-depth learning for all ages. You can bring us for a few days or for a few weeks to gain a deeper overall rhythm and drumming experience.
Drum Circle Residency Program:
More and more people are understanding the connection that drumming bring to groups. This connection is unspoken offers everyone, staff included, the chance to be respected and understood on the same level. In the drum circle, there are no teachers, students, principal or special needs students, we are all just people making spontaneous music together. Rhythm Kids can guide you to make this a part of your everyday school life. Once school initiated a morning drum circle time where Rhythm Kids rhythms and concepts where utilized before learning began. This special needs class went on to perform for the whole school and received a standing ovation as they TOTALLY ROCKED THE HOUSE!!! There were, and still are, amazing!
Upon your request, we can invite a master drummer to join us for any of these programs.
