In this course, we will continue the study of pre-war rebetikο we began in “Rebetiko Theory & Repertoire 1.” We will analyze the characteristic musical idioms and performance techniques that define this period, focusing on the melodic aspects and modes of rebetiko and how to apply these to the commonly used instruments (i.e. bouzouki, oud, santur, violin, vocals). We will study improvisation (taksim), and play pieces from the pre-war rebetiko repertoire. At the end of this course, students should expect to have an understanding of the idiomatic subtleties that define this style, and the skill set to move forward with it. To participate in this course, you must first complete “Rebetiko Theory & Repertoire 1.” If you are currently enrolled in Part 1, or if Evgenios knows you and that you're ready for Part 2, email peter@labyrinthonline.org so that we can allow you to register for Part 2.
