Personal Award scheme
What have we learned? • Intensive handling lessons produce better results. • A separate extra weekly practice builds significant foundation skills. • Good handling skills breed self confidence. • Kids benefit from activities designed for them. • Kids thrive on respect. • Communication has to be intensive. • Having fun is important.
What next…………. ? New ideas. 1. Try the same principles with adults • Target recruitment. • Teach intensively-theory and handling mixed. • Design the teaching to suit the learner, not the teacher. • Continue separate early learners’ weekly practices after initial handling lessons. • Apply researched principles of teaching. • Remember- Practice must be enjoyable.
Intensive Courses : -Weekends? -One weekend, one Saturday, and one night in the week? -Every night for a week? – ? Theory • • Safety-watch a bell being rung? Parts of a bell and how it works? Some history? Nomenclature/permutations? Call changes? Blue line and methods? Demonstration of ringing? Meet local band members? – Handling (6 to 7 sessions)
Learner Centred Teaching • Flexible teaching style. • Decisions guided by the tutor but shared with the learner where possible. • Close communications, asking and listening as well as telling. • Criteria for success judged by tutor and learner. • HAS BEEN SHOWN TO MOTIVATE ALL!
Continue separate early learners’ weekly practices after initial handling lessons. This will allow time to: – Establish good handling. – Develop foundation skills. • • Bell control Listening Striking Theory • Learners would be attending their own practice at this time. • Use simulator for this type of practice.
