Ringing in a new program!

from Derek Nance:

We are excited to be re-starting the handbell/handchime program at Lutheran Church of the Good Shepard. Your child will be participating in the bell program during the 10-11:00 hour on Sunday mornings. There are two groups, 1st-6th grade and 7-12th grade. Each group will be performing for the congregation on various Sundays throughout the year, in addition to learning about music and bells on a weekly basis.

Handbell and handchimes are the ultimate team instrument. Unlike any other instrument, each ringer is responsible for one or two notes at a time. Handbells can only work if every ringer is present. Please let me know ahead of time if your child will not be available for a performance or rehearsal. Don’t worry, if your child can not be at a performance, they can still participate in the program. I just need to know ahead of time to make plans accordingly.
