Get to know Toby, our Songleading Immersive Teacher!

Hi, I’m Toby Pechner and I’m leading the Songleading Immersive this summer. This will be my second summer at Kutz and 17th at camp. I’m from San Francisco (huge Giants fan) and spend my time not songleading at camp, and other places. I’ve recently gotten into baking sourdough bread, so hopefully I’ll be able to bring some to camp as well! I’m coming back to camp to help teach the next generation of songleaders and make some beautiful musical moments. This summer’s Songleading Immersive teens are going to get to learn with Alan Goodis, Dan Nichols, Elana Arian, and Rabbi Jeremy Gimbel for a week each! And, Cantor Ellen Dreskin will be there all summer long! In the Songleading Immersive, we will learn how to songlead for all ages, feel confident up in front of a group, build our skills and repertoire, and have opportunities to lead all of camp in tefilah (prayer), song sessions, and other magical, musical moments. I’m really excited to get started and hope to see you at camp! To learn more about the Songleading Immersive, watch this great video!
