Rhythm Cup Explorations is a fun way to learn rhythm techniques and does not require any previous musical experience. Students build rhythm techniques using a cup-tapping curriculum, where they learn note values, and how to create rhythm from those notes. Students start out learning how to tap simple rhythm and each lesson builds onto the last to be able to tap more complicated rhythm. Eventually, music beats are added, and students learn to tap complex rhythms with music. Rhythm is the basis for all musical training, and this course can enhance a student's rhythm skill for future piano lessons or future lessons on any musical instrument. Classes begin week of June 17. Cost includes music. Cost: $75
