Students will learn to keep a steady beat, to read rhythms with 8th's and 1/4's, and about time signature and counting. They will listen and play together and even begin improvising and composing simple patterns.

Series is open to students ages 6+ and no prior experience is required. Classes will be offered on Saturday mornings from 9:15-10am on the following dates: May 14, May 21, May 28 and June 4.
