Teaching Plain Bob Minor

Example lesson

Start with a pep talk through the order of patterns:

  • For 1-2 – coursing, 2/3, opposites, 2/3, coursing.
  • For 5-6 – coursing, coursing, 2/3, coursing, coursing.
  • For 3-4 – opposites, 2/3, 2/3, 2/3, opposites.

Announce when the treble is leading to begin with (might have to even if the learner is ringing the trebles).

Start with one lead at a time. If it fires out, start at the previous lead end.

Don’t always start at rounds, practise the tricky bits by starting at the middle lead ends or at a roll-up or at back-rounds.

If you get really stuck, watch the videos.
