A bright new concept in first ringing experiences, “Chord Stories” allow non-ringers (Level Zero!!) to learn their parts on-the-spot and then to confidently perform an engaging presentation: a narrative with characters brought to life by ringers playing chords and patterns representing different characters. “Noah’s Ark” includes Noah, God, the Ark, Animals, Townspeople and Rain. The clever assignment system easily expands to allow from 2 to 18 or even more ringers to flesh out these characters using 2 or 3 octaves. Characters may be taught by rote or by using the Set-Up sheets which show the notated pattern. All materials are included (Set-Up Sheets, Instructions, Narration, Record sheet) and you may reproduce materials as needed. (A "Rainbow" can be added by having all the sharps play either a big chord or a roll-off at the very end.) A wonderful piece for young children, a fun project for a talent show and a valuable tool for Music Conferences, “Noah’s Ark” can be used again and again to introduce each new generation of ringers to the joy of ringing.
