The Mukhtar Method - Oud Beginners: Learn Oud (Paperback)
This book has been written for beginner Oud students with no experience playing the Oud. The objective of the course is to acquire the basic techniques used to play the Oud and understand the characteristics of the maqam music system by studying the eight primary maqamaat together with popular traditional repertoire. No previous musical knowledge is required to begin this course, as most music is notated as tablature, a visual representation which does not require an understanding of music notation. However, it helps to have basic knowledge of music theory, rhythm, note names and notation. To make your oud learning journey with The Mukhtar Method curriculum series as accessible as possible, The Mukhtar Method Oud Beginner - 3rd edition, is accompanied by audio-visual material. This material is available on the Taqasim Music School's YouTube Channel and is openly available to you to support your learning.
