with Kianoush Khalilian

  • Ney
  • English

Description

This course will focus on the Persian ney, and its application in Persian classical music. We will focus on techniques required to produce the different sounds of the ney, particularly in the characteristic Persian style. We will also cover the basics of holding the ney properly, correct fingerings, tonguing and breathing techniques.  This course is for students with basic ney knowledge, however, there is room for higher level players who wish to improve in the Persian style. We will examine different dastgahs (modes) and gushehs (smaller units of notes that define a dastgah) of the Persian Radif (the entire collection of modes), as well as looking at improvisation within this framework. By the end of this course, you will be more familiar with the distinct style of Persian ney, and be better equipped with technique to continually improve your playing. We will cover the following pieces from the Persian classical repertoire: Koohestani, Hejaz, Raghse Choobi, Samani, and Dashti by Master Abolhassan Saba, PishDaramad and Abuata by Master Roohollah Khaleghi, Salam Sobhgahi by Master Hassan Kasaei, Mahoor by Master Roknoddin Khan Mokhtari, and Poolka by Master Darvish Khan. If you are looking to purchase a Persian ney, Kianoush Khalilian has them for sale, and can ship to North America and Europe. You can contact him directly. Labyrinth Online will not benefit financially from these sales, and is not responsible for any issues that may arise with respect to ney quality or issues with delivery.  Contact: kianoush1975@gmail.com +1 647 963 5491
