This course will focus on the basic forms of Cretan music. Through playing a standard repertoire, we will analyze each style, focusing on the rhythmic nuances and specific ornamentations that characterize each of these styles.    This course is for all instrumentalists.

We will learn Protos syrtos, Kolymbarianos syrtos, Therisianos syrtos, Sassalianos syrtos, Lousakianos syrtos, Maleviziotis pidixtos, sousta, and kontylies.
