Qanûn

Souhad Najem
MABO - Lycée Maria-Boodschap - Rue de la Braie 22, 1000 Bruxelles

Although relatively unknown in the west, the qanûn is one of the main musical instruments of the Middle East. Like the piano, which would be its counterpart here, many people play it ‘a little’ but few may be said to master it.

The course

Souhad Najem uses a scientifically-based academic method for teaching the qanûn. You can learn to master the instrument with the exercises he has developed himself (the teaching method set out in his own book), exploring a repertoire of Turkish and Arab works and even some European pieces. The course is open to beginners and advanced students, and to children as well as adults. You can opt for a half-hour individual course or a one-hour group course.

Instrument

During the lessons, one extra instrument will be available for the student. Teacher Souhad Najem can also help you find your own instrument at a favourable price.

Ability to read music required? No, but it is an advantage.

Timetable

You can sign up for an individual class of 30 minutes. The course takes place on Tuesdays (from 5 pm to 10 pm), Wednesday (from 5 pm tot 10pm) and Thursdays (from 5 pm to 10 pm) at Maria-Boodschaplyceum (Rue de la Braie 22, 1000 Bruxelles).

Souhad Najem

Souhad Najem is one of those who truly master the qanûn. A former student of the Music Institute in Baghdad, who subsequently taught in Iraq and Tunisia, he is the author of a volume of compositions that is reputed as a classic for teaching the qanûn. In other words, Souhad has a passion for teaching, which he takes extremely seriously. He has students in all parts of the world, many of whom have won national and international competitions.
