The purpose of the Starting Point 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 nine 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.
