This valuable new teaching resource continues the concept of ""Basic Training for Bells"" -- that EVERY new skill is introduced to all of the ringers, so that the entire bell choir learns and performs each new element presented. In each lesson, a new rhythmic pattern or time signature is practiced first in unpitched notation, then in unison exercises, and finally in a short musical example in which all ringers play the newly-learned element. The collection features both 2-3 octave and 3-5 octave musical examples, including arrangements of folk songs, spirituals, hymntunes and classical literature.
Voicing: Handbells; 2, 3, 4 or 5 octaves
Arranger: Erin and Venita MacGorman
