Item Number: LO.CGB518
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.
