In This Course You’ll Explore


Getting Started in Music

Reflections along the path of becoming ba'alei neginah and klei zemer, holders of song, for people who aspire to deepen their Jewish musical practice.

Becoming an Artist

In art, as in life, there are no clear answers. Artistry is the process of deciding between extremes. Walking this tightrope — navigating these tensions — is what produces good art.

Maturing as an Artist

Exploring issues that come up as we grow into our careers as artists, in the middle part of life and beyond, including family life, getting older, traveling less, and sustaining creativity.
