    I used the Rhythm Cup explorations game with groups this week; my students loved it – even the older high school students had a great time!

    I love that this is so adaptable (in terms of tempo, repetitions, sequencing, etc.), and can even inspire students to make up some of their own – suitable for all ages! I noticed most of my students were extraordinarily focused but relaxed when doing these exercises.

    My students were a little surprised at first, and then excited, and they had a LOT more fun doing those than the regular rhythm book I’ve used for years! My students are loving the Rhythm Cups! 🙂

    So. Much. Fun! My students adore Rhythm Cups and totally feel rewarded for achieving the prerequisite Rhythm Menagerie levels and being able to move on to Rhythm Cups. It appeals to all ages!

    I used the Rhythm Cups game at a group Piano Party. Students of all ages and levels loved it! We had a blast learning the song, and then challenging ourselves to do it at a faster tempo. Great fun!

    We tried Rhythm Cups in a handbell camp class and loved them. I remembered trying them in a former church music position, so I’ve ordered a bundle to use this fall in a new church position. I know the children will love them and learn a lot at the same time. I’ll bring my laptop and use the beats, too.

    Loving rhythm cups – using it in most of my lessons with pupils aged 7-11. Helping to establish pulse, and rhythmic coordination while having fun. One of my pupils also observed that I was enjoying this activity while teaching it! 🙂

    This is so much fun! I first did it with my family and everyone had such a good time. Then I started doing it with my students. It is a brilliant program! The accompaniment tracks are really fun to play along, and it’s fun without tracks. It’s just the perfect challenge for working on rhythm. I recommend it to everyone, all my music teaching friends, and they been sold on it, too.
