Double-Handed Change Ringing

The music of the bells is the music of mathematics.

It's all in the mind,
become a handbell ringer and your mind will never be the same again.

We built this site to encourage and enable people to learn handbell ringing. But in doing so we embarked on our own learning process and many of our "lessons learned" are embedded herein.

Bellringing is nothing without teamwork, skill, and achievement; but each person is unique. Some people will take a direct route to their goals, some will "enjoy the journey". Whichever type you are, there should be something in here for you.

We wish you every success with your handbell ringing.


Suggestions on how to use this site:

If you are pretty new to bellringing have a look at the Overview, and follow any links that look interesting to you. Then have a browse in the Glossary of terms, before going to the Recordings page and watching and listening to experts demonstrating what can be achieved.

If you have recently started handbell ringing and want to "pick our brains", go to the Learning Points, and follow any links that look interesting to you. Then have a browse in the Glossary of terms, before going to the Methods page to pick up hints and tips.

If you are a towerbell method ringer and are thinking of learning handbell change ringing, go straight to Plain Hunting, and take it from there.

Good luck
