As a recently elected Deputy tower captain who has been beginning to help with the teaching of learners at our tower, I found the ART M1 course immensely helpful. Moira was an enthusiastic and engaging tutor throughout the day, and had lots of practical and pragmatic advice to share. I can see how the ART method of teaching will produce ringers who progress both quickly and safely to being fully-fledged members of their bands. I particularly like the idea of teaching ringing up and down from the outset, so that learners really appreciate how a bell feels, as well as being able to control a bell that is coming down on them when ringing. The course has given me a really firm understanding of common handling flaws and how to correct them.
