TESTIMONIALS

"Ringing with Ron in a massed handbell event is a great experience. His interpretation is musical and his directions to the ringers are easy to follow. Throughout the day we were treated to anecdotes related to the music which were enjoyable and kept us on our toes." -Ruth, attendee at Greater Puget Sound Festival, May 2017

"People were impressed with Ron's leadership, professionalism, and how well he was able to communicate with ringers at all levels. There were a lot of comments about how easy it was to follow his conducting. Several ringers expressed their appreciation for the time he spent explaining the background to the pieces and how that helped them interpret the music." -Greg, coordinator of Inland Northwest Handbell Festival, March 2018
