The purpose of this collection is to offer simple music to young or beginning musicians that will foster success and provide the building blocks to future ringing experiences through repetition, the limited use of techniques and no page turns. The three pieces in this collection range in difficulty from level 1- through 1+ and include selections from folk, classical, sacred and original repertoire. They are ideal for use in school, sacred, or festival settings. Some of the pieces have optional repeats to use as length of performance permits or as the director sees fit.
For the 3-5 octave edition, the outer bells (C3-B3 and those higher than C7) can be added at the director's discretion based on the ability level of the ringers. They are not required and have been scored sparingly in this beginner's collection.
