About The Mark Twain Ringers: The Mark Twain Ringers are a group of talented students from diverse backgrounds within the Los Angeles area. They are a multicultural group of young people who have devoted much time and energy to perfecting the art of English handbell ringing. Their mastery of handbell ringing also helps them to focus on the academic and social aspects of their lives. Through music, they learn discipline and management skills that help them in the classroom. The fact that they are a close family of musicians at school helps them with their interpersonal skills and allows them to create a strong sense of community both at school and at home. These young ringers are an inspiration to their peers and to all others who are around them.
About Ron Theile:
Ron began his teaching career at Chester W. Nimitz Middle School in Huntington Park, California in the fall of 1994. Supported by the Nimitz school administrators, and most recently, by the administrators and staff of Mark Twain Middle School where he currently teaches English handbells, Ron has proven that music can make a difference. His music classes consisted of English handbells, concert choir and keyboards. Nimitz was the only school in the Los Angeles Unified School Districtâs central area with classes in English Handbells. Generally used in churches, the English handbell is relatively unknown to the general public, and certainly to the middle school environment. Ron has been ringing handbells since he was a very young boyâmore than 47 yearsâand he loves the spiritual and uplifting sound they make. Supported by the Nimitz school administrators, Ron set out to prove that music can make a difference in the academic life of his students. Not only was ringing a way to make beautiful music, but Ron knew that music theory accompanied by hands-on music-making, would help in the areas of math, musicianship, concentration and focus, self-esteem, and discipline. Over the years and up until the present, his students have born out these facts through self-improvement in their grades, the way they look at themselves and others, and with their musical accomplishments.

Karmina dedicates their song âYou for Christmas (featuring The Mark Twain Ringers)â to the troops:

"You for Christmas,â a song about being away from those you love during the holidays, is Karmina's gift to the U.S. military's servicemembers and their loved ones. Last year, Karmina and CBS Records were proud to support the troops by gifting "You for Christmas" to millions of troops and their families. The song was sent out via broadcast on American Forces Network (AFN) Radio as well as online, with the help of various military support organizations. The response Karmina received was both overwhelming and wonderful, although sometimes heart-breaking. This year, with your help, Karmina plans to reach even more with their gift of "You for Christmas (featuring The Mark Twain Ringers)"!


Proceeds from the sale of âYou for Christmas (featuring The Mark Twain Ringers)â go to The Mark Twain Middle School English Handbells Program.
