Handbell Music

    I've got a couple of sets of handbells and would like to start a handbell choir in my primary school. Does anyone know where I can find simple handbell music (in C?) I was thinking about just converting some easy recorder music, as I can't find handbell music anywhere!

    Thanks,

    This all sounds fascinating. i'm thinking of introducing a module for KS3, Year 9! What do you think?

    I'm also thinking about introducing hand bells at school. A scheme would be really useful, can you send me a copy? Thanks.
