Less than a full choir (solo/ensemble)

If looking for something specific, type keywords into the white Search Box located in the upper-right corner.

Every title is carefully selected and recommended by Susan Berry, one of the leading educators in the ringing community over the last 40 years. As shown in the descriptions, each selection is chosen for excellence in teaching ringing concepts, suitability for ringing level, and for general musical quality.

We consider these 250+ titles (of solo/ensemble music) to be among the best in the handbell world. When buying from our website, quality music is to be expected.  We only recommend and stock the best music available.  We are a small business, not one of the large giant companies in the Handbell World, and we know that you will enjoy doing business with us.

Additionally, Handbell Services can order any and all handbell and chime music that we do not carry on the website at a 20% discount, matching the large handbell music stores.  To do this, please call us during business hours, or send us a fax or email.  Please note: music not featured on our website is non-returnable. 

Please note that we may not have enough in stock in the store to immediately complete an order.  In these cases, we immediately backorder the copies needed from our publishers that day, and can promise to ship the delayed order within 2-5 business days as they arrive (we will ship what we have in the store immediately if requested).  

We invite you to visit us and browse!  Our Dearborn store has browsing copies of most handbell music from all publishers for the last fourteen years. HSI has 100+ sorted single-copy binders of Level I through Level VI music, solos, ensembles, and collections - containing thousands of titles.  

We also have a browsing area offering a sampling of the New Issues from all publishers, and a New Issues corner (with piano and CD player) that contains copies of all music published this year.
