How would you like the free use of a three-octave set of handbells or handchimes for one semester?
Area 12 of the Handbell Musicians of America has sets of each available exclusively for public or private school use. Use them with your vocal choir, start a handchime or handbell performance group, or use them with your music appreciation classes. The equipment, complete with foam pads, instructions, and a consultant (by phone!) is available for all education levels, from grade school through university.
There is some cost involved, although it is minimal. Participants in the program are responsible for shipping and insurance coverage while the instrument is in their possession, and purchase of music is not included.
If you’d like to see a bell program started at your school, there is no better way to build interest than to borrow some bells so others can see firsthand why you’re so excited about them.
