Handchimes are a simple and inexpensive way to get young musicians excited about reading and playing music!
This handchime handbook is everything you'll need to get your young ringers started. Grab some binders or folders, print out these pages and you're ready to begin instruction!
Included are the following elements:
-Front and Back cover pages
-Complete introductory information and ringing instructions
-A basic terms glossary
-Exercises for beginning ringers
-An activity for students to write their own exercises
-A rubric for student assessment
-A worksheet to test students written knowledge of introductory information
Due to copyright laws I did not include any familiar songs or pieces specifically written for 2 or 3 octave handchime choirs in this handbook. I have, however, found many resources online and in my own hymnals, songbooks, etc. to add at the end of my classroom set of these books.
Feel free to make as many copies as you need for your individual classroom.
I hope your students enjoys ringing as much as mine do!
