"Getting Better and Better Every Rehearsal!"

Saturday, September 8, 8:30 am-3:30 pm.

Classes and Ringing for Everyone.

* Body Mapping & Cross Lateral Exploration for Handbell Directors/Musicians. Handbell directors offer visual and kinesthetic information to their ensemble with every movement they make!  Body Mapping offers accurate information about our body to promote free and coordinated movement and avoid injury.  This workshop will explore  conducting gestures and ringing enhanced by accurately mapping the whole arm, skeletal balance, and muscular freedom for the neck, back and legs.  Full details on back. Cynthia McGladrey, Presenter

* Great Beginnings to Superb Rehearsals Warm Ups. When our musicians have great skills, we all have great rehearsals and performances. Skill building warm ups are great and it's fun to see the smiles among musicians as they realize an exercise that was impossible at the start of the season is easier and easier. Details on back. Ellie Hodder, presenter.

* Read 'n' Ring--"I love this piece"! A variety of publications for sacred, secular, concert settings. So wonderful you'll want to do them all. Ellie Hodder, et al
