Doodle Drums is an integrated, Mixed-Age music, art, and sensory class. We integrate these three wonderful activities into a fun, developmentally appropriate class for 1-4 year olds. This is the perfect class if you have a preschooler and an infant together. Many of the projects will work for both ages, but I will have infant options if they don't.
Try a Class
Try our Mixed-Age and Rhythm Kids Music Together class. We like to give you a no obligation to enroll option to try the class before paying for the whole semester. Sample classes are either included in the price for a full semester, or some may be free or low cost depending on location. Any way you look at it a sample class is a great option for trying our wonderful program.

Music Together Mixed Ages: Newborn -5 years old
Music Together Mixed-age Classes
This is the essential Music Together class, one that a child can attend from birth to age five through all twelve song collections. This basic class follows the recommendations of child development researchers—grouping children of a variety of ages because this fosters natural, family-style learning. Younger children enjoy watching and imitating older ones; older children learn by leading younger ones; and adults are happy because the children in the family can go to class together. Each child participates at his or her own level in singing, moving, chanting, listening, watching, or exploring musical instruments. Any caregivers—parents, grandparents, nanny—can bring the children. The whole family is welcome for this important family music experience.
Rhythm Kids: 5-12 years old
Music Together Babies
Rhythm Kids Classes
Rhythm Kids classes for pre-K and early elementary students tap into how children this age are wired to learn, with djembe drumming, music games, animal rhythm stories, and lots of stomping-flying-climbing fun. In each weekly class, we drum, sing, move, and play to rhythms inspired by musical traditions around the world. As your child learns to think and create like a musician, they’ll also gain valuable skills they’ll take to the elementary school classroom (and beyond!): confidence, focus, leadership, cognitive flexibility, and more.
Rhythm Kids 1 (RK1) is 4-5 year olds
Rhythm Kids 2 (RK2) is 6-12 year olds
Mixed Level is both levels meeting together. I will help parents of level 1 kids understand what is developmentally appropriate expectations in a Mixed Level class.
Babies need Music Together too! We have several options for babies and I suggest doing both if you can.
Our Music Together Lullaby Class or Lullaby Workshop has been designed for parents and caregivers of young children (non mobile children) 8 months old or younger and expectant parents to introduce you to the many ways in which lullabies are so important for children’s development. This class will also provide you with the chance to learn new lullabies and revisit familiar ones, and give you new ways to share these songs with your children and families. The Lullaby Series at the Rec Center is designed as a series of three once a month classes, but can be taken individually. The Lullaby Workshop is a little longer, but is only once every couple months. We will occasionally have a short mini session, like Jingle Bell Babies, with a series of 2-4 classes.
2019 Promotion! Babies under 4 months old are free in our Mixed Age classes. This weekly option plus what you can learn in the lullaby class on how to interact musically with your child is the perfect set up for families with a new baby. If your child turns 4 months old during a Collection/semester, your semester will be pro-rated to receive the classes before they turn 4 months old for free.

Families who have participated in our classes at least once already are eligible for our pre- and postpartum discount when their next child is due within one month before or after the start date of our semester. We offer this discount with the intention of providing your older child a sense of continuity during a time of exciting and disorienting changes.
In the pre-postpartum system, your child attends any four classes which have room in them, with you or any other caregiver you choose. You will text the teacher to alert the teacher that your child will be coming.
Once you have enrolled in your $60 pre-postpartum class, please email or phone us we can help prepare you for classes during your exciting time, (918) 695-8112. The day on the class is just a day so I can put it on the schedule. This class has no official day/time.
