Rhythm Cup Explorations to a Teacher Meeting

When I was program chair of our local association, I was always on the lookout for meeting ideas that would be exciting and would inject energy into our membership. And I was especially excited if the program was easy!

So I’m thrilled to be able to tell you that you can now bring the excitement and energy of Rhythm Cup Explorations to your music teachers meeting. Plus you can do it for free without paying me to come and do a workshop for you! All you have to do is download the materials that we’ve created just for teachers, get a few inexpensive supplies (see below) and viola….you have the easiest and most fun program idea you’ll have in years to come!

First, here’s where you can download the materials. Just enter your first name and email address and then enter. Within minutes, you’ll see an email from me pop in your inbox with a 1 page PDF download, and several of our mp3 tracks to use as well.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Rhythm Cup Explorations Teacher SampleMake prints of the 1 page handout I sent to you. You’ll want 1 page per attendee.[I promise you’ll want 1 page per attendee. Since this is a free handout, they’ll all want to go home and try it with their students.]
  • Get some plastic cups.
    You can use hard plastic of course, but just be careful with the head bonk! Or a 16 oz disposable cup is just fine. You’ll need 1 per teacher that attends, but you might get a few extra in case they can’t sit in a circle or around a table and you have to have extras for the “pass” feature.
  • Get something ready to play the mp3s.
    If you are doing this in your home, you can just play it from your computer. But you can also bring a laptop with you or your iPhone and connect to the sound system in the meeting location. You can also leave out the mp3s if it’s too complicated. There’s tons of fun to be had with Rhythm Cup Explorations just by themselves!

That’s it! You just need 3 things and it won’t cost much at all.

So, click the button below to get the 1 page handout and mp3s sent to you and have fun with your teaching friends!
