Art of Handbell Ringing
This collection of exercises and short musical arrangements and compositions have been created to initiate experienced musicians into the art of handbell ringing. Each musical piece is scored for either two octaves or two to three octaves. It is hoped that directors will enlist enough experienced ringers to ring along side their new recruits to fill out the two octave range. If this can not be done, your new ringers can ring along with the practice CD included with the Director's Edition. It is assumed that you, as director, will teach your students the proper legato ringing technique and will introduce them to all aspects of handbell notation unique to this genre.
