Handbell Musicians of America is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the musical art of handbell/handchime ringing through education, community and communication. HMA is composed of 12 regional areas covering the United States. Area 5 comprises the states of Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, and West Virginia. Each state is represented by a state chair.
Your Area 5 state chairs support ringing education and activities in our states on a local level. We are a great resource of information and support to help you build and maintain handbell and handchime programs in your community, churches, and schools. Handbell ringing is alive and well in our Area and we want to see it continue to grow! Feel free to email us with any questions or concerns, or just to introduce yourself! We would love to know more about what is happening in your corner of Area 5 and how we can better serve you.
We encourage you to join the community and get to know one another by sharing your activities and attending events. Interact with us on Facebook (check out the links below!) and attend Area 5 concerts, events and workshops.
