Dan Hoffner thinks that children make the best musicians, at least when it comes to handbells. While adults who play bells might feel inhibited or awkward, the fifth graders that Hoffner directs enjoy swinging their arms loosely as they ring their bells. Hoffner, longtime vocal music teacher at Lisbon Elementary, has directed a handbell choir at the Woodbine school since 1993. "It's amazing what 10-year-olds can do.

While all of the county's elementary schools are ringing in the holidays, Lisbon Elementary is doing it with a little more resonance this year, thanks to an early Christmas present from the school's PTA.This holiday season, the Lisbon became one of the few elementary schools in the county to own and play a three-octave set of handbells.Eleven fifth-graders have spent barely three months working together to create a kind of human carillon, a sound so polished that, without watching, it might be hard to believe it wasn't coming from a single instrument.
