With Michèle's new instructional DVD, you will perfect safe and effective ergonomic ringing techniques to help you not only "survive" those long rehearsals, concerts, and day-long ringing festivals, but also do so without pain or soreness. From the simple strike to four-in-hand and weaving, this DVD will help you focus on developing a relaxed ringing style to help control the bell, ring dynamically and make beautiful music.
