What is the difference between the International and North American edition?

If you use rhythm terms like quarter, half, whole, eighth, etc., you will want to purchase the North American version.

If you use rhythm terms like crotchet, minim, quaver, etc., you will want to purchase the International version. This is the only difference (besides the use of the word “bar” for “measure) between the North American and International Edition.

International Edition Samples:

The only difference is the title and rhythm terms used in the instructions.

    Do you sell just the beats to these? Last year I bought RCE 2 but am now interested in some tracks to go along with them.

    Hi Diana,

    We do not have beats YET, but they are on the list of projects to complete this year! Stay tuned. We’ll let you know when they are available in the newsletter! Thanks for your interest!

    I teach a weekly music theory class at a prison. While I have taught piano lessons to children many years ago, I had never heard of using cups to teach rhythm. I decided to order book one and give it a try. It was a big hit from day one; I couldn’t get them to stop playing. I wanted the inmates to have an opportunity to perform, so I ordered the Holiday Book. Starting in September we practiced Joy to the World and We Wish You a Merry Christmas for many weeks. We had one opportunity in December to perform for a large crowd of inmates at one of the church services. They performed superbly and attracted additional interest in the class.

    Thank you so much for creating such helpful and fun materials!

    Wow Paul. You have brought me to tears knowing that you use Rhythm Cup Explorations and the Holiday Rhythm Cup Explorations in your prison theory class! I am so, so, so glad and thankful that you took the time to tell me this. It truly make my weekend. How wonderful to know that what I’ve done and (especially) what you are doing are impacting all kinds of people in all kinds of conditions!

    Bless you for what you are doing!!!!!
