    Ringlets is an Embellish outreach program designed to provide children with an educational music experience and a basic introduction to the art of handbell ringing.  Through the combination of hands-on exercises, creative activities and a fun setting, Embellish hopes that Ringlets will help instill a love and appreciation of music and an interest in handbell ringing for young people, and the potential future handbell ringers of the community.
