Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

New bell ringers will be paired with established bell ringers and learn the basics of reading music and playing their bell on cue. Established bell ringers will learn multiple bell techniques.Playing in a public performance in the summer of 2014 will give new bell ringers a chance to exhibit their ability to play and understand music. Established bell ringers will be able to exhibit their new ringing skills in handbell performances.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Since the purchase of the additional bell sets, seven new bell ringers have gained the skills to move comfortably among the bells. All ringers have skills in the different ringing techniques, such as Echo, Plucking, Shaking, Tower Swing, Thumb Damp, and Weaving. Seasoned bell ringers have brought the newer bell ringers up to speed. Together they performed in four concerts between June 2014 and December 2014.
