- The melodic-rhythmic structures and their interpretation (different techniques used)

- The art of improvisation (Takassim and Istikhbar): the melody ornamentation, the use of the main Maqams (modes)
- Introduction to Arab-Andalusian song and its dimension in the oud technique.

The course is open to beginners (at least one year of practice), intermediate and advanced. (levels will not be mixed)

The days will start at 10:30 and will end at 5:00 with a lunch break between 12:30 and 2:00, so 10 hours of training in all.
