Handbell Musicians of America, Area 1 

Skill Building Workshops  - Fall 2014

Multiple sessions in October and November:  choose a date that works for you
Sessions throughout New England:  less travel!
Small class size:  get the personal attention you need

What You'll Learn:

  • How to identify and mark necessary changes of bells, techniques, dynamics, etc., within the workshop music
  • How to properly execute the various techniques required in the music, and how to move from executing those techniques in isolation to successfully preparing for and playing them within the music
  • How to put it all together and, by the conclusion of the workshop, play the music from beginning to end at a moderate skill level

Directors:  Participate in a special "working lunch" breakout to address specific musical concerns (bring any questions about the music you're working on with your group)

Workshop Fee:

               Members, $22 (your, your director's, or your organization's membership number required)
               Non-Members, $35
               plus  Music Packet (required), $17.45

 The music packet for this workshop consists of the four pieces in the 2015 Festival/Conference Massed repertoire.  You may order the repertoire from Area 1 with your workshop registration, or obtain it on your own (see the Area 1 website at area1.handbellmusicians.org for more information on the F/C repertoire).  Music ordered with registration will be available at check-in on the day of the workshop.
