Classical Arabic Singing

with Khaled Alhafed

Description

This course examines the origins and techniques of classical Arabic singing, specifically the revered muwashahat repertoire of Aleppo. Muwashahat are songs based on an ancient Arabic poetic form, with lyrics in classical Arabic.

This course is for students who already have some experience singing, though not necessarily in the Arabic style. We will focus on correct Arabic pronunciation, interpreting musical scores, and on rhythms, of which one piece can contain multiple.

Each of the classes in this course will focus on a different piece (muwashaha), and will cover a range of different maqamat. Each course will cover a piece not yet covered in previous versions of this course.

This course includes

  • 12 Hours of Instruction
  • Lifetime Access to Video Recordings
  • Certificate of Completion
