Young Ringers (ages 7-12)
Joyful Ringers (ages 13+)
Our handchime choirs consist of up to 12 members. These groups ring recognizable music using Schulmerich tone chimes. Unlike an orchestra or choir in which each musician is responsible for one line of the music, a handchime ensemble acts as one instrument, with each musician responsible for particular notes, sounding his or her assigned bells whenever that note occurs.
Therapeutic benefits include social interaction, cognitive benefits, and physical benefits. The handchime choir will also provide an outlet for emotional and music expression. The students will learn to contribute to the group as a whole. No prior musical experience or ability to read music is required. Requirements:
