In this four part course, we'll explore key skills and ask core questions as we seek to excavate the artistic and musical possibilities embedded in leading communal davening spaces.

6/18 Session One: Sonic Building Blocks: Nusah as Musical Palate

6/25 Session Two: Integration with Intention: Nigunim and Congregational Melody

7/2 Session Three: Moving Together as One: Rhythm, Tempo, and More

7/9 Session Four: Troubleshooting: Collaboratively Exploring Challenges

Learning Mode: While shelihei tzibbur from all tefilah communities are welcome, this series is designed to support the musical experiences of communities that do not integrate instruments or technology into their communal tefilah.
