Your first mistake is not pasting here the traceback you received.
That always makes it easier to assist with problems like this.

However, my guess is it's this line:

> pygame.mixer.Sound("bell.wav").play

'play' is a method, which means you need to call it. Try the following

> pygame.mixer.Sound("bell.wav").play()

And let us know how that goes :)
