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 in this website.

Q: What's all this about "Base Camp" and "K2"?
A: It's a mountaineering metaphor.

Mountaineering is all about teamwork, skill, and achievement; the cook is as vital the leader.
Bellringing is nothing without teamwork, skill, and achievement; there are many different roles.

When you reach Base Camp, (Plain Bob), take a breather, assess what you've learned, commit to your next goal, learn some more, gather your energy;
then go for it.
K2? (Surprise Minor?) It's a pinnacle, but not the highest.
Beyond K2? That's up to you and your team (band).
You define your own "Everest".
