Your ringers will enjoy every antic in "Shenanigans" – 8th note half-steps, surprising harmonic shifts with lots of accidentals, sneaky marts and mart lifts. Two non-compatible scores are included in the folio: "A" for 3-5 oct. and "B" for 2 or 2 ½ octaves (G4-G6, opt. C4-F4). This flexibility allows as few as 5 or 6 ringers and as many as 13 ringers to participate in this fun L2 piece.

"Shenanigans" features 8th notes in paired positions in which the ringer owns both 8th notes within a beat (if they ring space note in left hand/line note in right hand) making them much easier to play accurately. The piece therefore sounds (and the score appears) much more complex than it really is. While set in C minor, a blank key signature is purposefully used in "A" to give all ringers the same experience with accidentals. Rondo form encourages quick learning (The A section repeats unchanged), and an optional repeat allows for a longer performance time. A Unison Exercise for Bell Weaving and Accidentals is included, reproducible for each ringer to mark their own part or for take-home practice. "Shenanigans", with its quirky melody line and ever-shifting harmonies, will become a favorite of your students in concerts, contests and festivals. Use the sub-titles "Trick or Treat" for a seasonal program or "Trial and Temptation" in a sacred worship setting.

A welcome addition to ringTrue's "Class ring series" - showcasing pedagogically-focused pieces worthy of classroom attention and concert performance.
