    Handbell Orchestration

    Does anyone where I can read up on handbell orchestration technique? I'd like to do stuff for my church's handbell choir, but I need to read up first.

    Here is a link to someone who teaches handbell technique - http://www.thegoldendance.com/teaching.htm
    There is contact information and she may be able to point you in the right direction.

    The American Giuld of English Handbell Ringers (www.agehr.org) has an excellent book you should consider ordering. It's called "Handbell Notation: Difficulty Level System," and costs $10 for non-members.

    It's near the bottom of the page. They used to have a free downloadable version, but I guess they took that off.
