Matt Johnson discovered Handbells when as a 12-year old, he joined the Youth Handbell choir at his church.
While piano remained his primary instrument of study, he continued ringing bells throughout high school and college. Eventually employed as the Director of Music within the church world, Matt led many handbell choirs during his 30+ year career and often composed and arranged for the groups he directed.

In addition to writing, arranging, engraving the scores and recording the music,
Matt created the cover art for each sound recording.

His visually playful sense of humor is abundantly evident and includes: • Chopsticks used to eat noodles from a handbell for “Chopstix;” • A “knight” chess piece is featured for “Night in a Manger;” • A carton of eggs proclaims, “We Gather Together;” • In a roomful of NOEL robots, only the first NOEL wears a distinguishing hat.

Surprise Postlude

This conceptual musical work uses 16 "hidden" handbells from a 3-octave set to surprise listeners. Most effective at events when handbells are unexpected. • The concept emerged while driving to church without a definite postlude planned to conclude the service. No handbells were slated to perform that particular Sunday, so no one was expecting to see or hear bells…which made for a delightful surprise. • Implementation: It is suggested that ringers be “planted” throughout the congregation/crowd, making sure to hide the bells. At the end of the service/event—and seemingly spontaneously—one ringer stands and begins slowly pulsing the low C bell. Every two measures, another ringer is “inspired” to add their bell to the growing quartal chord tension. The low C’s rhythmic change signals a more pleasing “resolution” chord at the end. • Eight or more ringers may participate. No director is needed to conduct (no visual spoiler). The rhythms and/or pitches may be changed as needed for each performance. This work was created during Matt’s 30+ year career as Director of Music within the church world. He often composed or arranged for the handbell choirs he directed.
