How Many Bells Should I Get?
In most cases, you'll want every child participating in the program to have their own set of bells.
In both the classroom and at home, having a set for each child is a massive advantage. They can fully participate in every song and they'll (hopefully) take more ownership over "my bells." It also helps minimize competition for the bells amongst siblings.
That said, you certainly can split the bells up among two players to create a more duet type scenario. Many of the more difficult lessons suggest this anyway (i.e. each person takes 4 bells).
The problem is really in the earlier lessons where we focus on one, two or three notes, which happens in the majority of Chapters 1-5. In these lessons, many families who only have one set, end up having two kids participate but with different (aka the wrong) notes. This greatly diminishes the effectiveness of the ear training and the guided musical play that's supposed to be taking place.
