If you have always wanted to learn to ring, or just want to brush up on your techniques, five “Bell Basics” sessions will begin on Saturday, June 1. The sessions will be from 9 to 11 a.m. every Saturday in June at Avenue United Methodist Church, 20 N. Church St., in Milford.

The only prerequisite is the ability to read music. The sessions are taught by Judy Moore, a former church and choral music director and long-time devotee of handbells.

Cost will be $10 per session, cash or check, or $40 for all five sessions. If you have questions or would like to register, contact Judy Peterson, Membership Support Team Leader, at

“Ringing handbells allows one to be part of a group focused on sharing a unique musical sound,” Judy Peterson said. “There’s a sense of accomplishment when the sounds of the individual bells blend into beautiful music.”

Each session will concentrate on six areas of handbell basics:

    • Duration and Motion
    • Essence of Legato
    • Score Reading
    • Techniques Galore
    • Mallets
    • Why, When, How or Not to LV (Let Vibrate)
