28 Inspirational Lessons Animated For Eight Note Handbells
This DVD was created for beginning ringers in church and school settings who are ready to consider traditional music notation. Bells and notes appear on the screen, synchronized to accompaniments of various musical styles. The notation is presented in phrases allowing players who read music to look ahead in the score. The animations help non-readers to quickly grasp the purpose of music notation and to apply their new knowledge. The repertoire is chosen from well-known standard protestant Hymns. Texts are provided to encourage participants to sing along as they ring. No prior music reading skills are required to play the arrangements.
