    I'm teaching myself songs on the bells!

    In school, I play the orchestral bells in music class - for those who don't know, orchestral bells are sort of like a small version of a xylophone with metal keys. I've started signing out my bells set every weekend and teaching myself songs! So far I've learned and can remember all the notes to Smoke and Mirrors, and have taught myself the notes to The Fall, Demons, and Not Today. The hard part is figuring out the notes. I can't read music at first sight and I have no idea where I would find the notes to these songs (though I could probably Google it if I really wanted), so I listen to the songs and then figure out the notes by myself. There are so many more songs I want to learn, but I think that after I've practiced The Fall and Not Today for a while, I'm going to learn Gold next! That should be interesting!
    I will try to record a video of me playing Smoke and Mirrors so you can all hear it! I will keep you updated!

    I'm going to sign out my bells tomorrow and I may post a video! I would have done the video last weekend, but someone signed out my usual bells set and the only one left had odd flat keys, so I just used it to practise. But I promise to post a video at some point! +soon+
