With Nick Hanson
Practicing at home for me takes three different steps:



1) Marking music without touching a bell (bell changes, challenging rhythms, sharing situations)

2) Tapping rhythms and ringing through the most challenging sections
3) Rehearse by ringing along with a pre-recorded part if one exists (rinse and repeat!)

For me, each of these steps is essential in learning a part successfully. Step one prepares me for what initial challenges are in any given song (and I can quickly read bell changes using Don Allured's method), step two solidifies the basic rhythmic structure first through tapping out the rhythm and then working on it with bells in hand, and step three then brings it all together with the audio assistance.

Saturday August 31, 3 p.m. Eastern
