Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

New bell ringers will be paired with an established bell ringer to learn the basics of reading the music and playing their bell when they are cued to do so. Established bell ringers will learn multiple bell techniques such as Four Bell, Six Bell, Weaving, Echo, Malleting, Martello, Plucking, Shaking, Singing Bell, Tower Swing and/or Thumb Damp. Middle and high school students will be selected to participate in the youth bell choir. New bell ringers have learned to understand the music and special abbreviations and notations that are used almost exclusively in handbell music and they are able to participate in public performances.
