Reproducible beginning music for handbells or handchimes.
We're delighted to introduce Volume 2 of Sandra Eithun's popular Starting Point series. The purpose of the Starting Point collections 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 (with the exception of The Merry Widow Waltz.) The nine pieces in this collection range in difficulty from level 1- through level 1+ and include selections from folk, classical, sacred and original repertoire. They are ideal for use in school, sacred, or festival settings. These budget-stretching, reproducible collections are published in compatible editions for 2-3 and 3-5 octaves.
