- What’s On
Yunus Emre Institute in London is delighted to announce that our Oud Course with Baha Yetkin will be running for all levels for the duration of the summer period. If you are interested in music, and would like to learn more about the Oud, please follow the link above.
Baha Yetkin is Turkish oud artist and composer grew up in Istanbul, the meeting point of two continents, and the prolific melting pot of European and Middle Eastern musical cultures. So, not very surprisingly, he was able to shape a very unique artistic style which embraced both Istanbul music and Middle Eastern music; which in return, paved the way for fruitful collaborations with Turkish and European masters of music like Mustafa Keser, İnci Çayırlı, Melihat Gülses, Petros Klampanis, Michalis Kouloumis and Çiğdem Aslan.
This online course will cover the ‘Turkish Style Oud’ - one of the main instruments of Ottoman/Turkish Classical Music.
Beginners will have a practical introduction to the Turkish side of Oud playing and a step-by-step guide to play and read Ottoman/Turkish Classical Music using the Oud. All other levels will have a tailored course structure according to previous knowledge and skills.
Each class will be held on a 30 minute one-to-one basis at a time agreed with the student. Timings will be offered on a first come first serve basis. Contact email@example.com to arrange your time slot.
Classes will take place through ZOOM, an online platform.
