Learn to interpret the melody line of taqasim and understand the way Arabic melodies work. You will view professional musicians demonstrating their instruments and introducing you to maqamat, the melodic scales. Next Ranya will go into great detail during the improvisational skills section, covering the use of energy, focus and dynamics; hands and arms, eye gaze, and placement and posture appropriate to working with taqasim. The last section focuses on improvisation drills so you can practice on different instruments, with and without rhythmic accompaniment. Technique breakdowns go over key movements, and as you work through the drills you can choose from Ranya's two different voiceover commentary options. One focuses on technique and performance skills; the other on musical details. Bonus features Ranya performing with the musicians! Running time: Approx. 155 minutes (+ approx. 115 minutes of audio commentary)
