Hebrew in Harmony FAQs

 

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why teach prayer through music?

The reasons are many: Music creates a safe and welcoming environment rich with opportunities for learning. Research shows a link between music and emotion, and students learn best when new information is associated with strong emotion and engagement. Music also acts as a powerful memory device. Plus, music adds joy and fun to Hebrew learning.
Do I need musical skills to teach Hebrew in Harmony?

No! The beauty of Hebrew in Harmony is its roster of fabulous professional musicians who are virtual teachers during the music portions of each lesson. Each lesson is fully scripted, so when it says to “play the music,” just play the music.
Is Hebrew in Harmony appropriate for a particular movement/affiliation?

Hebrew in Harmony is designed to be used by educators and students of any affiliation.
