Do you love listening to music from around the world, but wish you could understand it more?
In this class, we will explore music from diverse musical traditions with an intention to grow your understanding and deepen your musical engagement. Genres covered will include South Asian music (India/Pakistan), Balinese Gamelan, Middle Eastern music, and more. You will learn to identify instruments, rhythm cycles and other elements of the pieces we listen to. You will also gain insight into the history, culture and context from which these musical genres arose.
The course will be lead by celebrated sitarist and composer, Mohamed Assani. In addition to his performing and composing work, Mohamed is an engaging teacher who taught world music at the London’s prestigious Royal Academy of Music. A wonderful opportunity to deepen your musical appreciation and understanding! No musical experience required.
