Review:      “Upbeat!” is exactly that! A lively piece that features….upbeats! Carefully and clearly scored for “new-to-8th-note” ringers, this jaunty piece is easy to ring yet sounds big and complex, so even more established groups will enjoy ringing it as well. The sprightly melody is played in all ranges. Two non-compatible score formats allow full ringer participation according to the bell range and number of ringers available: Score “B” (3 or 5 oct., Level 2-) features 8th note pairs that are always set within a single ringing position (both notes are played by one person), making them easier to play (Level 2-). Score “A” (2 octaves, Level 2) is set in a different key to accommodate the smaller range, shifting these 8th note relationships around; so two ringers might share ringing responsibilities for the two 8th notes within a beat (a slightly more complex skill – making Score “A” Level 2). A few easy accidentals add color and interest. 2:00 to 2:30 performance time, depending on tempo. A unison exercise sheet to practice 8th note patterns and introduce the concept of upbeat is included. Appropriate for classroom, concert, workshop, worship (with the sub-title “Lift Your Voice in Praise”) and Level 2 Festival repertoire. To see more pedagogically-focused pieces featuring music worthy of both classroom teaching time (and productive rehearsals!) and performance, check the “Class ring” series from ringTrue Handbell Music at (Music Search Assistant, select the “Series” at the bottom of the page). The audio clip is played by Redeemer Classical School 6th graders, Spring 2020.
