One of the most popular search terms that leads to my blog (besides sheitels, which is, oddly, my most popular search term) is “how to get things done with a baby.” Lately, I’ve been wondering how to get things done with my three non-babies. And by things I mean the “extra” things like playing music.… Continue reading Can A Mommy Foster Her Own Talents?
As you might have noticed, I’m getting excited about the upcoming In Harmony concert in Cleveland (May 26th!). In preparation for the concert, I made a little video. For those of you who have been curious about this music playing I keep mentioning, here it is.
Before I get into this post, there are two points of business: First, I’m happy to announce that Rochel, who commented “My least favorite room is the kitchen. However, I do enjoy the workout that cleaning it entails!” is the winner of the “Let My RV Go” novel giveaway. Yay! I’ve emailed you to… Continue reading What Makes Jewish Music “Jewish?”
One of these days I intend to have a serious discussion on the ethicality and sense of posting so much about our children’s lives. Today is not that day. Today, I am posting a video that I made from some unique photos that my oldest son took with my phone’s camera. Instead of getting frustrated… Continue reading 101 Faces
Everyone pretty much agrees that music can be extremely potent. I’ve been moved to tears on multiple occasions (and not even because of hormones, haha). People have playlists for working out, playlists for yoga, playlists for a bad mood, a good mood, cleaning, and anything else you could probably think of. Music can move us.… Continue reading The Power of Music: an Experiment in Film
Here’s a musical memory from nearly a decade ago (oh wow). Enjoy! Immediately after I graduated with my Bachelor’s in Music Performance, I found myself in a musically shiftless situation. I no longer had the benefit of ensembles to play with, and I also didn’t have the advantage of knowing people in town to jam… Continue reading Does your Daddy know you’re here?

I love Chanale Fellig’s music. When I heard that she had released another CD, I wanted to get it. And then I dawdled, and things came up, and we moved, and, well, I didn’t buy it until a week and a half ago. And what a shame that I waited! It’s a fantastic album. I… Continue reading Review and Giveaway of Chanale’s newest CD
Last Sunday, Tzom Gedalia (October 2nd), I participated in the Day To Disconnect, a movement to encourage people to put down their tech and connect with people the old-fashioned way, face-to-face. I decided to share my experience with a vlog! The sound quality is not as great as I would like; apologies for that. I’d… Continue reading Day To Disconnect Review
