Reply To: Handbells in Public School?
Hand chimes would be a great start. I own a set of Malmark choir chimes that I have been using with my general music middle school students for @ 10 years! Packaway Folding Tables that are similar to tables campers use may be helpful. When playing chimes at their desks, students use cut strips of the gripper shelf and drawer liner to provide a soft surface for the instrument. The “grippers” as I call them also help prevent the chimes from sliding off the desks.
