The Music Tablet Project

Not just a few people have asked us about the music tablets which we now use exclusively on our handbell tables. Ringers and audience members alike have probed our digital devotion. To answer those inquiries as completely as possible, we present our narrative. These music tablets have served to change our approach to rehearsals as well as to our performances, and to challenge our attitudes about printed music.

As far as we know, RiverBells is the only handbell choir performing (and rehearsing) paperless. Our digital tablets store all of our music, and allow each ringer to edit and write independently on their own screen. Each ringer has a foot pedal which allows the musician to turn pages soundlessly at will.
