I am a music teacher at a high poverty school in South Carolina. Two of my classes include special needs children. One of my girls is completely deaf, but yes, MUSIC is her favorite class!

My students LOVE playing instruments! When it comes time for my melody and accompaniment lesson, I know that they would enjoy learning this element through playing an instrument. Most of my xylophones have missing keys and broken boards, so I wanted them to try something new this year.

An element of music is Melody vs. Accompaniment. Playing the handbells is a great way to include both techniques at the same time. The students will have to listen carefully to determine the melody line against the accompaniment. It is something that can include the entire class so that "everyone gets a turn." This hand bell set is colorful for the younger students to also incorporate art and just plain fun!

You will help this music class tremendously by donating these bells. I know that it would bring a smile to my students' faces!
