Stuck in the Middle – $10

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. All skill levels are welcome.

Weaving 101 – $10
3:00-3:50pm

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.
