What we're about

This is a group for musicians and singers at any level who want to learn more about Turkish, Arab, Balkan, Greek, or Persian music. I'll be teaching scales, songs, rhythms etc. in a fun, interactive environment. Different levels of skill and knowledge are welcome. My main instruments are oud and guitar, and I also play various Middle Eastern percussion and Baglama. If you want to learn any of these instruments or if you play violin, accordion, clarinet etc. and want to learn this music, you are welcome to join. About me: I grew up in Turkey learning both Turkish and Western music from a young age. My main instruments are guitar and oud but I play saz and percussion to, in addition to singing. I have a masters degree from Upenn in ethnomusicology and right now I teach guitar there and privately in New York. I write my own music and play a lot of different styles, you can see some of my playing and teaching in these links:
