Workshop: First Congregational UCC Corvallis - Spring Tune-Up 2014
Join Bells of the Cascades for a spring handbell workshop!
Choose from three tracks, each with three classes:
- Track A: Building on the basics. Reviewing basic ringing techniques, tricks for better sight reading, and stopped-sound techniques.
- Track B: Hungry for more. Featuring classes in damping, weaving, and four-in-hand.
- Track C: Eat, sleep, ring. Emphasizing bass bell techniques, four-in-hand, and sophisticated rhythms — or, “how to ring the impossible.”
