The Kristal Bell Method enables anyone from kids to elderly seniors to produce beautiful handbell music accompanied by fully orchestrated song arrangements recorded on compact discs. Excellent music activity for the classroom, church, senior center, or just fun with the family. The most unique aspect of this method is that no musical knowledge is necessary on the part of the handbell players. The way that the system is designed makes it possible to perform almost instantly.

Cheers for the Bells

To say the Kristal Bell Method has been enthusiastically received is an understatement. In fact, because of the positive response and many requests for the materials used in the system, Kristal Bell Method, Co. was formed. It stands ready to provide your group or organization with an unprecedented handbell playing system, furnishing you with musical enjoyment for many years.

Kristal Bell Handbell Reviews

Customer Reviews

The children in our church really enjoy ringing the handbells. Not much practice is needed. The director nods her head and holds that colored chord card up for that beat, then puts it down for them to recognize who plays the next measure. "Mistakes" aren't obvious with the CD melody in the background. Our children are exposed to a wider variety of music and feel special participating in the worship service. Also, we anticipate this will futher their love of music and a desire to learn.

Thank you Kristal Bell Method Staff!
I am an Activity Director for seniors and have started a handbell choir in every place I've worked. This is the best, easiest, and most fun way for seniors to play music. They love to sing and play the songs and we take our handbell choir around to other places to perform. You have been such a wonderful company to do business with. We have almost every handbell song you have and we really hope you can make more handbell songs for us to continue to enjoy. Thank you!

Wonderful customer service!
I needed help in choosing handbell songs and received excellent advice, especially valuable since I don't have a music background but am the only one to direct our children's handbell choir. Our kids won't sing, but they love to ring!!!
