Good links for training a band:

The Clapper Archives contains a very large selection of educational articles about many aspects of learning to ring, to ring well, to ring particular methods, to conduct, and to compose. A list the titles of these articles and the issues in which they can be found is in the "Articles" section of this website. The Clapper Archives on this site are open to all members of the NAGCR.

Links to UK ringing courses can be found here and information about North American ringing courses are on our Calendar of Events.
