I think the best way to start learning is buy two sticks, or find some in the forest, starting keeping the beat one hand and playing the bell with the other on a wood, keeping timing with your feet.
After 3 weeks or more, you can try moving the beat and keeping the bell steady and your feet.
After one month try to double the beat and keep the bell steady and your feet.
After another one month try to fit 3/4 in 4/4 keeping the bell steady and your feet.
After 3 weeks try to fit 4 in 3 of 3/4 in 4/4 keeping the bell steady and your feet.
After that, try to experiment with variations.I suggest starting from these 2 bell patterns
X--X --X- --X- X--- OR X--X --X- --X- --X-
X-X -XX -X- X-X OR X-X -X- XX- X-X
After mastering these, try to walk a big silent road alone.
