logoWhat is The Handbell Podcast?

A podcast is an online radio show that anyone can subscribe to for free. Our vision with this show was to create a community of listeners who would be able to share ideas, frustrations, joys, and laughter. It has truly surpassed our expectations with our audience growing slowly each week. We try to bring you current research into handbells and educate our listeners in how to ring in a healthy way. We hope to create a place for people to come together and share in the artistry that is handbells and help promote it as a true musical art form.
