COURSE OUTLINE

Students will explore a wide range of music that can be performed on handbells. No prior musical experience is necessary, but some basic background in reading music may be helpful. Expectation is that this is a beginning level ensemble and all the basic ringing techniques will be explained and the level of music will increase each week. Periodic performances throughout the semester will be mandatory. A mind open to experiencing new, different, and sometimes unusual ways to perform music is a must!
