Praise Him with the sound of the shofar
Praise Him with the harp and the lyre
Praise Him with drum and dance
Praise Him with stringed instruments and pipe
Praise Him with the sounding cymbals
Praise Him with the loud clashing cymbals
Every soul praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord![Ps. 150]
King David was a musician before he was a king. Miriam and the prophets of the book of Samuel would pull out the drums regualarly. Music is part of the Jewish experience.
I'm not the best musician, a mere beginner, but I play a little guitar, drum, harmonica and ukulele, some not so Jewish instruments, but I like to explore music particulary bring my jewish side to music. This section os all the stuff I collected or thougt about music. Some are essays, some are songs. I segmented these into thier respective instruments for those looking for a jewish experience in some folk instruments.
I'm always looking for contributions. E-mail me if you are interested in contributing to this page.
