Taught by Musical Prayer Leader Debbie Fier (www.DebbieFier.com).
Drumming is an active form of meditation. It provides a wonderful way to be present, express yourself and learn how to drum with a group in sacred community space. At Kehilla, we are creating an intergenerational drum group, called Ketzev Kehilla, (the Beats of Kehilla), and we have been learning some of the rhythms for the Kehilla melodies and also drumming at our Chai Shabbat services.
This is a 2-class series. It can be taken as a series or as individual classes. However, if you want to drum at High Holydays services, you must come to both classes.
Those who wish to will have the opportunity to drum for our High Holydays services at the Scottish Rite Center in Oakland. Participants who want to join us in drumming need to commit to coming to both classes of the series (exceptions may be made IF you have taken previous ‘Drumming as Prayer’ classes with Debbie. In those cases you must come to at least 1 class). If you have taken this class before, and enjoy drumming in our Kehilla circle, please come to the class! We will always learn new rhythms, practice new exercises and continue building on what we have previously done.
Please refrain from wearing any scented products, in order to make this class accessible for those with environmental sensitivities.
Dates: Tuesday, September 16 and Monday, September 22.
Location: In the Fireside Room.
