Oud Method (Book and CD)
by John Bilezikjian
40 page Book and CD Package

John Bilezikjian, "America's Oud Virtuoso" has written an Oud Method book for the Hal Leonard Corporation of America. It is the first book of it's kind to be written on this instrument, published and released to the public. The Hal Leonard Corporation is the largest music company in the world that publishes music course study books, having hundreds of titles in their catalog.

The Oud Method Book is a beginning course study for the Oud that helps a student to learn this ancient musical stringed instrument. It is intended to be a study guide to learn this instrument along with an instructor as well. The book is written in traditional Western music notation and also contains a history of the instrument from Mr. Bilezikjian's research library. The study contains developmental exercises, scales and course work necessary to learn technique on the Oud.

The CD is made so that a student can play along with an instructor or by panning a track to one side, can play along with the other pre-recorded track to help make it easier to learn the more difficult lessons. There is also a chapter included on Armenian and Middle-Eastern rhythms with examples performed on the Dumbeg by Mr. Bilezikjian

The last piece in the book is an original composition originally written in the early 1970's by the composer and dedicated to the Legendary Master Oudist, George Mgrdichian, one of John's mentors. The composition is called "Bagatelle" and is written as an Oud duet.

The book covers: types of ouds, tuning the oud, playing position, how to string the oud, music notation, scales, chords, arpeggios, tremolo technique, studies and exercises, songs and rhythms from Armenia and the Middle East, and a CD with 25 tracks for demonstration and play along.

Book and CD $25
plus $5 shipping and handling
