Fall Into Ringing Workshop


Do you have bells that are in a closet and not being used?
Do you have a choir that is having difficulty getting started or have ringers that have very little experience?
Are you a beginner and want to quickly learn necessary skills?
Are you a slightly more advanced ringer or group that wants to play music with other handbell musicians, learn some skills, and have a lot of fun?

Fall Into Ringing is probably for you.
