Are you already proficient on your instrument? Do you occasionally play new ideas and melodies, but you do not yet have enough basis to transform these into real musical compositions?
Congratulations! You have a talent for composition and this course will help you to compose your own songs. It is a course that extends over several months and will be adapted on the current level of the individual student.
You will develop your skills through musical analysis and learning to write down your musical ideas. In the beginning, you will work on musical phrases and specific musical periods, after which you will write in binary and ternary tenses and then work on variations and developing melodic ideas.
The course concentrates on forms from different musical traditions such as the doulab, longa and the Samai, in the Middle Eastern manner. In addition, the course covers the couplet-refrain, rondo, popular dances such as waltz, gigue, polka,… as we know them in the West. Elias Bachoura is a specialist of both Western and Eastern classical music and will help you to deepen your musical knowledge.
Instrumentation and the notation for the different instruments are also aspects that will be discussed. Initially, the focus is on writing melodies, after which arranging for different instruments and voices is also taught.
Elias Bachoura studied at the Conservatory of Music in Damas, Syria, his country of origin. After arriving in Brussels, he studied composition and orchestration at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels. With time, he has acquired knowledge of both oriental and western music which makes him critical and attentive of all styles of music. The subtlety, touch and innovation of his playing has made him a key musical reference. He currently plays in the Flemish orchestra ‘Olla Vogala
