What is a Musical Siddur?
Our series of Musical Siddurim by Hazzan Pinchas Spiro z"l contains the all the essential building blocks for you to learn how to lead any service throughout the entire liturgical year. Each prayer is presented with the complete Hebrew text, English transliteration, syllable-by-syllable musical notation and note-for-note recording made by Hazzan Spiro himself. No matter your Hebrew level of ability to read music, you'll find our Musical Siddirum accessible and easy to follow.
Do I need to be able to read Hebrew to use a Musical Siddur?
While Hebrew reading is not required to use our Musical Siddurim, it is very helpful. All you have to do is follow the transliterations provided, listen to the recordings and the pronunciation should be very clear. Of course, there's no substitute for having your cantor, rabbi or other knowledgeable lay person check your work before you step up to the amud.
Do I need to be able to read Hebrew to lead a service?
Ah! That's the million-dollar question. The answer depends on who you ask. The Sages, of blessed memory, enjoined upon us to pray in a language we understand, with the understanding that Hebrew is the ideal to which we should always aspire. Our Musical Siddurim were created with the student in mind. As long as you are leading with kavannah, or intention, and your community has called upon you to lead them in prayer, we want you to have the tools to ascend the bima with confidence regardless of your current level of Hebrew. If your Hebrew language skills are still developing, study the prayers in translation to ensure you understand them, grab your Musical Siddur and start leading!
Can I access the lessons in any order I want?
Yes. We understand that everyone comes with different background and experience. You may know some prayers that others don't, so feel free to jump around as you choose.
I only need to learn one kind of service. Do I have to pay for everything?
We've priced these online courses in a manner consistent with what you might have paid for the physical books that we've been selling for decades. Rather than sell individual courses, we felt we could provide the most value to our customers by offering the whole kit and caboodle for one low subscription price rather than selling courses a la carte. If you only need to learn one service, you might want to simply register for a monthly subscription and unsubscribe once you've completed your learning. If you want a refresher, or to learn new material, you can always resubscribe when the time is right.
Where do I enter my discount code?
Once you have selected your desired membership level on the "Membership Levels" page, you will be taken to the "Membership Checkout" page. In small text below your selected Membership Level price, you will see a small link in orange the reads "Click here to enter your discount code." Note: you must add your discount code prior to clicking the "Submit & Checkout" button.
Can I use a Musical Siddur in a live service?
The short answer is: YES! In addition to all the goodies we've included to help you learn, all of our Musical Siddurim contains the complete Hebrew text of every service you may be called upon to lead. Ideally, you will be able to just use your siddur or machzor without need of the music or transliterations, but if you're not ready to ditch the music or transliterations just yet, simply visit our store and get your copy of the Musical Siddur of your choice.
Do I need to purchase a physical copy to use a Musical Siddur?
That's totally up to you. If you find the online resources sufficient for your learning needs, there's no need to purchase the books. If, however, you feel the need for extra support while you're davening, or just want to learn with an actual book in your hand, you can always order what you need from our online store and then use the recordings here to guide your learning.
What if I can't read music?
Our Musical Siddurim are designed to work equally well whether you can read music or not. If reading music is not your thing, just listen to the recordings.
Which service should I learn first?
While the answer depends on your particular needs, we recommend beginning with the most common services first and working your way up from there. Since the weekday services provide the blueprint for the structure of all the services, and are generally easiest to learn musically, it might be best to start there. Or maybe you already know how to lead a weekday service and need to prepare for a High Holy Day job or assignment. As with most things in life, feel free to take what you want and leave the rest.
Do you have courses to teach Torah Cantillation?
Coming soon. We have a dedicated team hard at work on creating lessons. In the meantime, we urge you to reach out to your cantor for instruction in conjunction with such online tools as TropeTrainer.
