A sign up sheet will go around the first week of school for students interested in ringing. All students in grades 4 and 5 have the opportunity to ring handbells.
- We will be using a 3 octave set of choir chimes to learn the basics - choir chimes are the precursor to handbells.
- There is so much to learn about ringing and a whole set of vocabulary that goes along with it. For example, a measure is a box of music. Counting measures helps us know what measure we are on.
- We will learn how to hold the chime and how to make it ring. We will also learn various ringing techniques including how to damp our chimes.
