Music Literacy for Beginners

This course is highly recommended for students who want to take oud lessons for the first time but haven’t seriously studied music before. music theory

Learning a new instrument is hard enough by itself: new ideas, new techniques, new pieces of music and lots and lots of practice! So let’s make things a little easier. In this short series (5 lessons) of classes you will learn all the basic skills you need to read, write and “talk” music. Taking a practical approach to music theory, we will be adapting the best bits from Western classical music theory and Arab classical music theory to give you all the tools you need to start your new life as a musician.

Topics for the course will include how to read and write rhythms; how to read and write melodies; understanding the basics of maqam theory and how to recognize maqams in notation; how to understand all the signs and symbols on a musical score. Taqasim theory 2

NOTE:  We highly encourage students interested in this course to sign up also to the Oud Beginners course.
