Project Description

Holiday Rhythm Cup Explorations

The holiday edition of Rhythm Cup Explorations will be the highlight of this year’s group party, partner lessons, or music class! Another supplement to the fun, reproducible rhythm curriculum (Rhythm Menagerie and Rhythm Manipulations, and Rhythm Cup Explorations), Rhythm Cup Exploration Holiday Edition takes advantage of “the cup craze” to re-enforce rhythms you’ve been teaching all year! And the holiday edition adds new elements like music to play while students tap, reaching and cup tapping each other’s cups, tossing cups, and more! But don’t take my word for it, look at the faces of the students in this video!


  • 3 levels of rhythms that accompany the songs in a musical way
  • Both secular and sacred selections so you can choose what works best for your studio (2 non-religious and 1 religious) Specifically: Deck the Hall, Joy to the World, and We Wish You a Merry Christmas
  • Tips for making your cup tapping holiday class a smashing success (no pun intended…the kiddos seem to think it’s really fun to smash the cups at the end, even though that’s not indicated in the music!)

My students love the cup exercises – even the ones that I thought might not!
