Has anyone ever heard of this instrument? (I've also heard it called Choirchimes or simply Chimes) I recently took leadership of a Youth choir for playing the Handchimes at my church in Hagerstown, Maryland.

I would appreciate if anyone can direct me to seminars, books, or videos that directly relate to leading such a group. Also, does anyone have any tricks for teaching some basic theory as related to playing the chimes, especially considering that my group comprises players from 11-19 years old at this point and they are of various levels musically speaking - I don't want to go too fast for the newer musicians but don't want to bore the ones who ask for challenges. Any ideas?
