Kent Treble Bob Minor might well be the first Treble Bob Minor method you ring on handbells. Build up to it by ringing the stepping stone exercises/methods of Treble Bob Hunt, Bastow Little Court and Forward Minor. There are advantages and disadvantages of ringing Kent:
If you're a novice band, you could try ringing Kent with dodging in 3-4 instead of places in order to cement the other rules first. It is false, but that shouldn't be an issue.
When you are learning Kent it is perfectly alright for the strongest ringer or the treble ringer to call out "treble dodging in 1-2 now", "lead end" or "hunt above" (the slow bell) or "dodge above" (the slow bell). Adding structural comments like this can stabilise the ringing and help people learn how to ring by watching or listening for the treble.
The plain hunt block (x16) at the Kent lead end is replaced by a (x14) block when a bob is called. This is the same place notation block as for a bobbed lead of Plain Bob Minor and it has the same effect:
Kent is a sixth place method, the lead end comprising a (x16) or plain hunt block. This contrasts with Plain Bob which has a (x12) block at the lead end. To call a bell unaffected, you don't call Wrong or Home, but In and Out (of the slow work).
Calling at a wrong or home results in the calling bell being affected.
If you call a bob at the end of each of the first three leads then the tenors ring the same lead (the first lead) three times whilst the other bells practise making the bob, running in and running out. The touch is only three leads long.
Calling any bell (but it is traditionally the tenor) to run in and then run out, two times, will give you a two course touch of 240 changes.
Calling "In, Out, In" three times, is analogous to the "Wrong, Home Wrong" three times called for a seconds place method.
