Basic Training for Bells

Review:      This collection introduces the essential skills needed for ringing handbells and handchimes by presenting rote exercises for the ringers to drill each new skill. Music throughout the book, arranged in both 2 and 3-octave versions, includes hymn arrangements, classical transcriptions, and original pieces. The music provides all ringers the opportunity to put newly learned techniques, such as shaking, echoes, martellatos, changing bells and playing at dfferent dynamic levels, into practice. Instructions are given for modifying the techniques for use with handchime choirs. A bibliography of music utilizing the various techniques is included. Creative and humorous illustrations throughout the book enhance its appeal to ringers of all ages. The collection is three-hole punched for easy insertion into each ringer's notebook.
