This course will provide students with the basic groundwork necessary for playing the Turkish kanun. We will go over some of the basic techniques used by contemporary masters including glissando, arpeggio and mandal. We will also learn to play chords with our left hands and melodies with our right hands. We will play pieces by Aziz Dede, Nikolaki, Dede Efendi, Hasib Dede and my own compositions. We'll use this repertoire to learn various Ottoman makams such as Saba, Karcigar and Nihavend.
