The theory and practical work follows the structure of the Learning the Ropes handbell scheme which is fully supported by ART.

Provides a clear direction to develop basic change ringing skills using a variety of methods, with theory and fun exercises to gain a clear understanding of how methods work.

Delegates will be supplied with a Handbell Personal Progress Logbook (included in the fee to ART).
