2013 Pittsburgh Ringing Course

Southminster Presbyterian Church, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

August 2–4, 2013

The seventh annual Pittsburgh ringing course will be held at Southminster Presbyterian Church, 2 to 4 August 2013.

The course will be aimed at helping students develop the skills required by the transition from simple, plain hunt dominated methods such as Plain Bob and Grandsire, to methods with more frequent dodging and place making, such as Kent Treble Bob and Stedman. Ringing may be on six or eight bells, depending upon the students experience and needs; for sufficiently experienced students we may also work some on Cambridge Surprise Minor. However, the emphasis is not on complexity, or the particular methods rung during the course, but rather on acquiring the skills necessary to ring well at this level.

Students should have successfully rung at least three tower bell quarter peals on an inside bell (not just the treble or cover) to some method.

The course is limited to a maximum of six students.

Further details can be read at Pittsburgh Ringing Course.
