Learn Turkish Makam Music On Guitar

Fernando Perez is a master musician who began playing Spanish guitar aged seven and by the following year was enrolled in the Zaragoza music conservatory. He has since dedicated 40 years to immersing himself in the detailed study of each of the worlds’ major, and lesser known guitar styles. From B.B Kings’ Hollywood blues club to Egypt’s Alexandria Opera House, Fernando has performed the world over for music lovers, guitar enthusiasts and royalty alike (ranging from Kings and Queens to Prince – the artist formerly known as.)

Having contributed to multiple Grammy award winning productions, released over 20 of his own world guitar dedicated albums and featured on educational publications by Hal Leonard, Stefan Grossman Guitar Workshop, Mel Bay, Universal and Warner, Fernando takes his inspiration from an ever unquenched thirst for musical knowledge.

He’s studied and/or taught traditional music at Maui Music Conservatory (Hawaii), Istanbul University (Turkey), Shanghai Music conservatory (China), Labyrinth Music Centre (Greece) and Musicians Institute (USA) on a never ending journey of personal guitar development. He took his guitar and lived in Egypt, Greece and India embarking in the search for local masters who would teach him the secrets of their native music.”

“As cliche as this may sound, this course will actually open up your ears to new possibilities. By re-tuning your ears, your guitar and your mind into the Turkish makam system you’ll develop a heightened harmonic awareness and knowledge about how to transpose the traditional techniques of the oud on to your guitar.”   Edd Bateman (World Music Method founder).
