Tunes That Teach

Review:      The purpose of this book is to provide music for beginning bell choirs, but it is not intended to be used in the first few rehearsals. The ringers should know the basics of ringing and damping before learning this music, and the group should have rung slightly easier music as they began developing these skills. The book is not intended to be a methods or techniques book either(although there are some preparatory exercises in the beginning). As you use this material, you should not only think like a handbell/handchime director, but you should also think like a teacher. As directors, we are all teachers. Use the concepts in this book as a springboard to develop other exercises and activities to meet your group's needs. In the beginning, basic musical terms are described, as well as handbell notation. Warm-up exercises are also included. Some of the titles in the text are: "The Ash Grove, English Country Dance, Theme by Haydn, Trumpet Tune in C, and more."
