Holiday Rhythm Cup Explorations - Cup Tapping fun by Wendy Stevens |

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, 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!

Holiday Rhythm Cup Explorations includes 3 piano arrangements plus carefully composed cup tapping routines in 3 levels! This means that you can have different cup tapping routines for your elementary, one for your early intermediate and one for your late intermediate students!

But don’t take my word for it, watch the faces of the students in the video below! More details are below the video!
