CANCELLED: The Role of the Radīf in Iranian Music Education

lectures-symposia
Zoom

NOTE: This event has been cancelled for now, but it may be rescheduled in the future.

This talk examines the current practices of music education of the radīf (the Iranian music repertoire). It addresses how the radīf, as a central tool in learning, is dynamic and needs to be taught based on the student’s competency.

Fariborz Azizi is a Los Angeles-based tār and setār player, composer, music educator, and researcher. In a career spanning over four decades, Azizi has been recognized as one of the most influential music educators of our time. He has instructed and mentored hundreds of students of varying ages and nationalities on the tār and setār, privately and in classroom settings. He is undeniably an authority in teaching and knowledge of the radīf.

The Iranian Music Conference Series is made possible thanks to generous support from the Farhang Foundation, The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music Department of Ethnomusicology, and the UCLA Center for Near Eastern Studies, with additional support from the Dean of The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music.

Test Kitchen: Decolonize Music Theory through Multi-Sensory Writing with Nina Eidsheim and Juliette Bellocq
What if we listened to music with our tongue, feet, or skin? In this interactive event, we will experiment with multi-sensory experience of music. Engaging with a writing model from PEER Lab graphic designer Julliet Bellocq and founder Nina Eidsheim can help us relate to our senses more fully, and deepen our relationship with music and ourselves.
