Hi everyone - this is Andrew Kzirian.  Wanted to take this opportunity to welcome you all to TAQS.IM's forums - Aram and I are super excited to launch the TAQS.IM premium community. We have tons of goodies in store that we can't wait to share with everybody, especially our instructional videos, which feature my instruction on the oud for beginners and enthusiasts alike. Please check out all of our pages and offerings, and don't forget to leave a brief introductory post yourselves so we can learn about each of you and your musical backgrounds and interests.

Enjoy!

This is amazing! I have waited a long time for something like this site. Can’t wait to learn from the ud videos and also for kontakt sounds.  Will you offer other instruments too?

I am blown away by what is here thus far. Exquisite! Cannot help but feel like this is addressing a blind spot in the middle eastern music scene on line. Well done guys. Will be spreading the word with my network.

Hey everyone, I want to thank Andrew and Aram for putting this altogether. So many websites only contain portions of this information, to have it all condensed into one website with a community is just amazing! My background is Greek and Armenian, and I play play mostly Greek music. I am extremely excited to hear and learn things from an Armenian perspective on the oud. I am very interested in developing a deeper understanding of makam theory and application, as well as ear training to spot them when heard in songs. Looking forward to watching this place grow!

Hi Aris,

Welcome to the forum! Thanks for the nice words, we're just getting started and have a lot more items in the works. One of those items is definitely to get audio samples in the scales section!

THIS IS A GREAT SIGHT GENTLEMAN...I'VE GONE THRU THE LESSONS SEVERAL TIMES WHICH MADE ME TAKE A CRITICAL LOOK AT MY TECHNIQUES.  RIGHT THERE WAS WELL WORTH THE COURSE.  THE CLARITY OF THE VIDEO IS EXCELLENT  AND YOUR SPEAKING MANOR GIVES ONE THE THE FILLING YOU ARE TALKING DIRECTLY TO ME.  EXCELLENT.  ALSO, I'D LIKE TO SEE MORE ON THE CLOSE-UPS OF YOUR FINGERS RELATING TO THE NOTE PLACEMENT...NOT TO JUMP THE GUN HERE.  WORKS WELL FOR ME...BE LOOKING FORWARD TO MORE...WELL DONE.

Happy oud playing!
