Handbell Choirs!

HANDBELLS! Well.... Actually we use something called "choir chimes" which are easier to wield, easier to care for, and they have a gentler sound than 'real' handbells. (oh... and the we about 1/10th the price! lol) 

Anyway - this is a really cool instrument to learn to play.  It encourages cooperation and ear-training unlike any other instrument! And I'm not kidding when I say that ANYONE who wants to learn to play CAN learn to play! 

You do NOT need to know how to read music.  Seriously.  I'm not kidding.  

You do NOT need to have any prior experience making music.  

All you need is at least one arm/hand and a willingness to give it a try!

We usually stand through all of rehearsal - but if that's not an option for you, don't worry!  We can arrange things so that you'd be able to sit. 

We have parts for ALL kinds of abilities and skill levels.  So if you ARE experienced at playing bells, don't worry - you will NOT be bored! 😉
