My Favorite Pinterest Boards for Children's Choir

Where can you find music resources, tried-and-true teaching strategies, fun games, creative visuals, and accessible craft projects?

Pinterest.

It's crazy how much content there is on this social media platform. In addition to all the recipes, inspiration, art, and home-decorating ideas you could ever need, there are tons of resources and ideas for choir, teaching, and ministry. It seems every time I search, I find something new!

Earlier this year, I shared some of my favorite finds for worship planning and design and handbell choirs. Today, I'm sharing some of my favorite Pinterest boards for children's choir

My Favorite Pinterest Boards for Handbells

When it comes to playing (and directing) handbells, there's a lot to learn.

For instance, those who are brand new to handbells may not initially realize that the music is written one octave lower than the actual sound the bells make (C5 = Middle C). (source) In addition, there's the basic ringing and damping technique, figuring out how to make bell assignments, and enough special techniques to keep you busy for a while.

Where do you go to learn about getting started, choosing repertoire, teaching technique, and developing music-reading and rhythm skills?

I hope you find a few helpful resources right here on this blog! Here are some posts you might find useful:

My Favorite Pinterest Boards for Worship Planning & Design

Pinterest is a great way to save inspiration and ideas from around the web - from home decor to dinner recipesgift ideas to inspiring quotesholiday celebrations to weddings to design inspiration. I love the visual pin-board look of the site, the ability to add captions (e.g. notes to self), and the embedded links for easy access later. In addition to personal inspiration, though, I've found Pinterest to be a great source for teaching resources and business advice. I've also started collecting some of my favorite tools, ideas, and resources for church musicians and children's choir directors (see here and here).

Pinterest is one of the first places I look for visual inspiration, especially when it comes to worship planning and design.

What have other churches done?
How do other congregations celebrate these seasons?
How can we incorporate more visual art into our services? 

Simply type your search terms into the box and sort by pins, pinners, or boards.
