David will present a variety of musical genres, including Afghan, Persian, Turkish, Arabic, Greek and Central Asian styles, and introduce the maqam concept and its variant relatives, and knowledge of basic rhythms.
This workshop is more geared to beginning and intermediate players, although an advanced player in one sub-genre of the music may not be as advanced in another sub-genre, so all levels are welcome. It will use both quarter tone AND non-quarter tone instruments, and will introduce students to scales common to the genres. All chromatic instruments are welcome, subject to instructor’s approval in certain cases.
There’s a possibility David can supply a few extra instruments, and the musical instrument library may also have some options. David may also offer beginner instruction on various instruments.
