About Jere Friedman

“The gongs found me,” says Jere Friedman. “From the moment that the mallet struck the gong at my first gongbath, I felt drawn – compelled – to learn to play these marvelous instruments and to share with others the joy and healing they bring to me.”

Soon after that first experience Jere began learning to play the gong. In November 2009, Jere had the privilege of attending a three-day “playshop” with world renowned Gongmaster Don Conreaux. Since then, Jere has studied with Don for an additional five days and has spent countless hours playing for himself, his wife, Ellen, and others at private and public gongbaths and other meditation events. Each gongbath is a unique, uplifting, and joyous experience for the player and the listeners – everyone departs feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and energized.

Jere now is a trained volunteer for Ryan House, a palliative care facility in Phoenix for children with life-threatening conditions. Jere and his gongs visit Ryan House regularly to play for – and with – the children and their families as well as the staff and volunteers. Jere shows the children who are physically able how to play the gongs. In some cases, this means helping them to hold the mallet in their little hands and striking the gong with them. “It’s such a joy to watch the kids marvel at the amazing sounds the gongs make – their eyes light up, they giggle with delight, and their loving smiles and hugs just send me soaring!” says Jere.

Jere also regularly serves as a trained volunteer with Hospice of the Valley. At HOV, Jere and his gongs offer calming gong meditations for individuals nearing the end of their lives, as well as their families and friends and HOV staff and volunteers. The soothing sounds of the gongs provide a few moments of peaceful meditation during the final stages of a person’s life.

Jere collaborates regularly with other musicians, including pianist, performer, and educator extraordinaire Lynne Haeseler. Lynne organizes, orchestrates, and conducts large-scale meditative experiences such as Solstice and Mysterium. These joyous, uplifting events include piano, gongs, chanting choir, African drums, violin, flute, organ, dancers, and other instruments.

From time to time Jere and his gongs also perform with The Shakti Pistols, a novel musical mash-up of kirtan chants, Grateful Dead and other rock tunes, and the gongs! Talk about fulfilling your life's dreams of "just playin' in the band!"

Jere currently has the good fortune to share his life with four remarkable gongs:
• Mr. Charlie(1) – a 32” Paiste Symphonic gong
• Sylvia(2) – a 20” Paiste Symphonic gong
• Al Tira(3) – a 38” Paiste Sedna Planetary gong
• Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh(4) – a 24” Paiste Uranus Planetary gong
