Bell Kit Solos
Why have your beginners buy the bell kit and do very little with it? The little keyboards were essentially worthless as a solo instrument . . . until now! The Beginner Mallet Series uses fun songs to teach double stops, parallel and contrary motion, dynamics, and experience working with accompaniment. Each song includes a piano/bell score, bell part, and CD accompaniment. These short solos are perfect for solo and ensemble, play tests, and memory assignments.

     Two in Three - Grade 1, double stops on parallel thirds
     Lonesome Trail - Grade 1, western swing
     Two for Two - Grade 1, an eighth-note octave study
