The Tower Handbook


Learning is the key to most aspects of ringing. You need to learn from the word go. In the early stages you are actively taught, but after a while, you must take the main responsibility for what, when and how you learn. This section should help you to do that. Learning is complementary to teaching (see section 11). Look at that section as well, but remember it is written mainly from the teacher's perspective. Also remember the value of taking yourself off to other towers. It will give you more ringing time, experience on a wider range of bells and with different ringers, and the sense of being more in control of your progress than sitting waiting to be spoon fed at your own tower. See section 8.5.
