Rhythm! Saturday Programs


Rhythm! Discovery Center has begun a new Saturday Program initiative to bring new and exciting family opportunities to the downtown Indianapolis area every Saturday morning. Beginning in June and continuing through December 2014, the Rhythm! Saturday Programs follows a very easy schedule to assist everyone with knowing what type of program will be taking place each Saturday.



1st Saturday – Percussion Exploration: Build an Instrument:

In each workshop, kids explore the world of percussion by building a different percussion instrument. Workshops will include a brief introduction of the instrument, how it makes sounds, what it is used for, and how it is made. Parent participating will be encouraged and necessary in some of the more complicated steps. Recommended for kids ages 4-10. Limited number available – first come, first served.


2nd Saturday – Family Drum Circle:

Join Rhythm! Discovery Center staff or guest artists for a family-friendly drum circle! People of all ages are welcome. Bring your own instrument, or use one of the many instruments Rhythm! will supply.


3rd Saturday – Rhythm! Special Programs:

The third Saturday of each month will feature a different performance or program to education and entertain all guests. Use this opportunity to learn more about the role of percussion and rhythm in music, societies, and cultures from around the world.


4th Saturday – Find Your Rhythm! Family Adventure:

Bring your little adventurers on an exploratory journey through the world of percussion! Get your “Find Your Rhythm Map” to learn about the science of sound, world music, and rhythm. Explore with your child by stamping their passport when they visit each clue! Recommended for kids ages 4-10.


All Saturday programs will begin at 11am and will be included in the price of admission, or with your Rhythm! Discovery Center Membership. Special programs will occur in the Fall 2014 and will be announced soon.
