Building Basic Skills
Now there is a beginning book for 2 octaves that introduces the same ringing and reading skills as UP AND RINGING! - Carol Dare's earlier method book for 3 octaves. The two books are not compatible because the drills and performance pieces in BUILDING BASIC SKILLS have been rescored to sound good with 2 octaves. Although the pedagogical material works with smaller groups of ringers, the actual performance pieces will only sound good with a full 2 octave group. This text is designed to teach ringers basic ringing skills one step at a time and to provide the director a "ready to use" set of materials.
