I play the Turkish instrument known as a Baglama, one of the very first stringed instruments created, 6000 yrs ago. Grandfather of all stringed instruments. I have been teaching since 1986 and have had many students who have succeed either abroad or locally, I am the only Baglama teacher in NSW who has special permission to Teach from the Turkish Radio and Television ( TRT ) notation archives, All Folk songs are taught the way it was originally written, Including regional Tavir strumming and regional tuning of various styles. I have also studied music in Turkey, Ankara by the legendary teacher, Ihsan Ozturk. ( Student of Nida Tufeci, and was linked to Muzaffer Sarisozen, Father of Modern Day Turkish Folk Music by introducing notation to Turkiye in the early 1940’s ). I am currently Teaching Private lessons and Lessons for Mariif International Schools Auburn Campus. Song, Technique and reading notes are taught on a individual set program to ensure the success and learning ability of each student. Once the student has completed the song, he will then record a solo on video to guarantee he has as a memory for future use or as a reminder of songs learnt. Some parents have granted me to use some students Solo Performance video on YouTube, search Seztunes and you will see some examples of( private )music students completing their songs. Studied Fact: Only 3 instruments in the world that you can play non stop for 24hrs and your brain will not find it disturbing ,Annoying or irritating, 1st. Piano, 2nd. Guitar, and 3rd. Baglama.
