Our teaching strategy

Hand Chimes

Hand chimes (Tone Chimes) are loved by young ringers and we play tunes using standard music sheets to encourage the understanding of the basics of musical notation. We use them in schools and church with children from the age of three.

Hand Bells

Loved by the older generation. We play these using numbers

Wacker Bars

Tuned plastic tubes – a fun way of letting off steam

Mini Ring

Suitable for everyone from three upwards. A fun way of ringing just like tower bells. When you can ring on this you progress to the dumbbell. We use the mini ring with local schools.
We ring for Sunday service with our young children.

Dumbbell

A very quick and safe way of teaching to ring.

Virtual Ringers

Using our computer generated virtual ringers we can teach people to ring in the right place and experienced ringers can learn to ring different patterns of ringing all without the need for other ringers to help
