I really liked the oud instrument, but I couldn't learn it here because of the high costs and long distance, but Nawaz group gave me the opportunity to watch it online, and I am very grateful to Prasto, my dear teacher, for teaching me so patiently.

Oud or Barbat, the best Iranian instrument

Our country has introduced many instruments to the world that have been able to gain global popularity. One of these very popular instruments is the oud instrument. Many music scholars believe that the guitar had been made by inspired by this instrument! Iranian oud or Barbat is one of the wound string instruments that besides Iran is used and popular in many Arab and African countries. If you are also interested in learning this instrument, stay tuned.

Features of oud instrument

The oud instrument has a very special appearance. As we said, this instrument is a stringed and wound instrument that consists of three main parts: the handle, the resonant bowl, and the strings. The resonant bowl of this instrument is very large and pear-shaped. Its handle, however, is very short, the end of which and the location of the hooks are broken and crooked. The handle shape is designed in such a way that, unlike many other wound string instruments, most of the strings are placed on the resonant bowl rather than it. The oud has ten strings or five pairs of strings, to which in some types, one or two other strings have been added. One of the features of the oud instrument is that it has the most bass sound among Iranian string instruments. Among the most famous Iranian oud players are Mansour Nariman, Mahmoud Rahmanipour, Akbar Mohseni, Abdolvahab Shahidi, and Majid Nazempour, and among the foreign oud players we can mention Munir Bashir, Riyad Sanbati, Farid Al-Atrash, and Anwar Ibrahim.

Oud training

You can learn the oud in both face-to-face and online classes. To attend face-to-face classes, you need to find a suitable educational institution. The oud instrument is one of the instruments for which it is relatively difficult to find a class with a suitable teacher. There are few institutions that teach this relatively complex instrument. In addition, if you live in a small town, your job may be even harder. Apart from this, face-to-face classes also have the problem of commuting and paying fees, which causes some people to stop attending the class. Online classes have better conditions in this regard. You can attend these classes from any city with a computer and high-speed internet. In this sense, online classes are not only more time-saving and cost-effective, but you can attend them from anywhere, even when you are on a trip. The instructors and courses taught in the face-to-face and online classes are the same, so you do not have to worry about that, and you can become a professional musician in both classes. Online classes, like face-to-face classes, are taught from the beginner to advanced levels. The important thing is to be able to choose the right online music school.
