12 Toners System Book Thirteen: New Horizons By Dolores AndersonÂ Spiral-bound book 17 pages Â One of a series of books providing a unique adaptive notation system for use with tone chimes; the book also works well with handbells. All of the songs in this book use 8 or fewer notes. The 4 Mystery Songs have the melody numbers written out without the song title or staff notation. The "12 Toners" title refers to the numbering system, which uses 12 numbered notes to make a chromatic octave. If additional tone chimes are available, the numbers can be extended up or down to include more ringers. Several different color and/ or number coding systems are presented, to make successful ringing possible for everyone regardless of if they read music. Choose to play chords as you sing the song, play a simple melody line along with the song, or combine the melody with chords for more advanced groups. Permission is granted to the purchaser to make transparencies or charts of the songs from the book.
