New and refurbished ideas for LDS Primary Music Leaders (a.k.a. Primary Choristers)

Saturday, January 19, 2013


If you only have the 8-note handbelset, which would be the basic set of bells to purchase first out of the 20-25 total bells, then "I Am a Child of God" is the perfect song to play with the handbells since there are no sharps or flats in this song and all notes are within the middle C to high C range of the bells.

If you need more info on handbells, take a looksie at this post from last year and this one too.  

I've converted my original bell chart from the 11" x 14" tabloid size to the 8 1/2" x 11" paper size. This should make it easier to print.  I've included all four verses with the chorus only once. Just print the verses you want to work on with the bells. You can tape the pages of the verses together or keep separate and post on your board. If you don't tape the verses together, you may want to number the pages in order and mark which verse they are so if you happen to drop the pages and get them mixed up, you can easily put them together.
Have fun chiming away!


  1. Thank you so much for posting this!! We will be using it for sure! I really do appreciate all you do for the rest of us out here!

  2. I am so glad I found your blog. You save me all the time. I was so sad when I found out you were released. Thank you for continuing to think of us choristers we have no musical ability but want to teach with heart and spirit.
