Mathematics and Music = Sound Education.

Afterschool of music and math

for Children (grade 1-7)

Our AfterMusicSchool programs are built on the belief that children thrive when they feel safe, supported by the adults, challenged by friends around them, and when they have both the structure and resources to pursuit their interests.

Afterschool at RhythmNY is a combination of discipline, creativity and learning outside of the classroom setting. Further the program enriches learning experience by presenting opportunities for students to learn skills for creative expression, work together in mixed age groups, challenge their comfort zone, and benefit from the inputs of real musicians and specialized teachers.

The program focuses on three main subjects for students, so they can stimulate their brains and engage in various activities. All programs are structured and led by experienced teachers.

Our core curriculum can be broken down into three categories and are included for all students

  • School-work follow ups (Homework and Commoncore Workbooks)
  • Mathematics
  • Music

And an extra course included in core curriculum

  • Pilates for children

Following are extra (add-on) programs students can enroll
