Beginning Ringers Workshop & Classes

Details

Saturday, October 15, 2022

The Beginning Ringers workshop is for those who have never rung handbells or who have less than two years of ringing experience. Classes are offered in the afternoon for ringers of all skill levels.

Beginning Ringers – $20
10:00am-12:00pm, using handout from Greig Ashurst
This workshop begins with proper basic handbell technique and progresses to a massed ringing activity. 

Stuck in the Middle – $10
1:00-1:50pm
The middle bells or "battery" is a fun place to be! There can be a lot of action in the music of the middle bells, and this class will give you some strategies and practice for handling what comes up.

Weaving – $10
2:00-2:50pm
Learn to master two bells and their accidentals, making smooth, swift changes without losing your place in the music or getting your bells "mixed up." These skills will help you ring more effectively in full groups and provide the basis for solo/ensemble ringing.

Bass bells – $10
3:00-3:50pm
Learn the proper techniques to handle the big bells without injury, and how to play them effectively. This is your chance to ring The Raleigh Ringers' "big buckets"!

Registration for each workshop/class is separate, so you may choose the classes that best fit your needs.
