About the Program

In an energizing blend of soul, reggae, and ska, Rhythm Child reinterpret classics and perform an array of new, uplifting, and educational songs to engage the whole family.

In 2003, Norm Jones, managed by his wife Heather Jones, created Rhythm Child to provide parents and teachers the opportunity to interact with children through music. Accompanied by the Jones’s sons, Bailey and Andre, Rhythm Child has inspired creativity through live performances, children’s drum circles, movement, interactive workshops, and a line of educational products. The White House recognized Rhythm Child’s positive impact upon childhood education by inviting the band to perform at the 2011 Easter Egg Roll.

Through drumming, Rhythm Child encourages children to build confidence, connecting them with their inner rhythm and the rhythms of those around them.
