This Is What You’ve Waited For!

If you are an educator and use handchimes in your classroom you may have noticed that resources for using chimes in education are virtually nonexistent. Or perhaps you use handchimes as part of your music program at church, with senior citizens, in your music therapy groups, with special needs groups or with Orff-Schulwerk lessons? You're probably looking for quality, easy to use music and lesson plans and not finding it. Plus, there is no online community specifically dedicated to handchime information and for sharing ideas and resources.


What resources or lesson plans have you needed for handchimes in the past? Perhaps one of these is something you’ve looked for and failed to find?

  • Ideas or lesson plans for teaching children or beginners
  • Music that is instantly successful
  • Repertoire or usage information specifically for handchimes
  • Resources for handchimes or bells in music therapy? For beginning ringers? Special needs?
  • Easy ring and sing music
  • Alternate notation to teach ringing
  • An online group for sharing ideas about handchimes and ringing
  • A place to share music and lesson plans you have used successfully
