In the early days, there were few opportunities to see the ringing performance in Taiwan.

The best predecessor artist who played Ringtones, because his successor is Mr. Chen Caifeng, a Fuxing drama school, can only open the seeds for promoting Ringtones in Taiwan.
As for Taiwan ’s ringing, it can be fashionable and common today, and it is the first choice of Keelung Zhongzheng Junior High School-Teacher Liao Dapeng and the school ’s coaching staff. At the beginning of the promotion, there were very few people who knew ringing, and fewer people would play and perform; Teacher Liao and the school ’s coaching staff resolutely and wisely hired Fuxing Opera School ’s Chen Caifeng and Wu Chengkun to guide the school ’s students to learn ringing and stage poses. To lay the dominant position of the school in the future.
In the 72nd year of the Republic of China, Zhongzheng Junior High School for the first time won the right of representatives of folk youths to visit abroad, and did national tour performances.

Since 1996, the ringing has entered a recession period. Due to the reduction of national folk sports competitions, coupled with the free teaching of ringing by the power group in schools in various regions, due to the huge personnel costs, it was difficult to maintain in 1993. As a result, the excellent coaches he trained were transferred to other schools, and he was unable to continue to promote bells and whistles to various schools.
Fortunately, the Ministry of Education and the National Folk Sports Association have been actively holding folk sports studies since 1998, and folk primary and secondary schools in various countries have also organized a folk bell-traveling community, praying to resume the grand occasion of peak bell-ringing in the past.
The promotion of ringing in schools around Taiwan gradually changed to silent ringing after 2000! Since switching to safe ringing, the probability of student injuries has been greatly reduced, and on the other hand, there have been nine years of traditional folk sports courses, so the ringing movement has been out of the recession after 1996, which is really gratifying.
