School Music Educators – you can borrow handchimes for use in your classroom!

Handbell Musicians of America Area 8 has multiple sets of handchimes available to loan to for use in public, parochial, or private schools.  Loans are for one semester, and include music and materials, a one-year membership in Handbell Musicians of America, and access to a mentor. We ask the school to meet the following:

  1. The school provide a certificate of insurance for the chimes
  2. The chimes are used in at least one performance setting during the semester
  3. The educator provide a report on how the chimes were used

The grant provides a 3 octave set of handchimes for one semester (approx. 4 months) with teaching materials, a support network and/or mentor, and a one-year membership to Handbell Musicians of America.
