Middle eastern music is a form of ancient art, unlike western music. Middle eastern music did not evolve properly because it depends on hearing and was rarely written. This made middle eastern music theory extremely difficult to study and relied on practice. But believe me, the original middle eastern music is simple and has so much potential for creativity.
The contents of this course can be applied to any musical instrument but preferably the ones that allows you full control on the pitch, such as Oud, Ney, Qanun etc can be used to practice. Due to the nature of the Arabic or middle eastern music, you might not be able to perform all of the scales which you will learn in this course on certain instruments such as guitar or piano or non-middle eastern keyboard instruments.
