This is the classic (and unsurpassed) teaching CD in the handbell world!
Created, produced and featuring David Weck and Susan Berry, it is a must for beginning handbell programs -- the finest comprehensive resource of instruction for handbell musicians. Produced in the mid-1980's, this standard of handbell education remains accurate and relevant today -- and there is still no better resource for beginning hands-on-how-to viewing for a new director or for a full choir.
A director or ringer watching Bell Basics learns through close camera observation the correct way to hold, ring, and damp handbells. Susan and David, along with a demonstration choir, present correct and incorrect ringing techniques, while carefully explaining the differences.
Also covered in Bell Basics: the handbell and it’s mechanism, equipment needs, basic bell assignments, and the standard layout of bells on the table. Table damping and several special techniques are also demonstrated.
