In Persian music the ornaments are very important. In fact they are part of melodies. To know well the structure of classical Persian music you have to know well how the ornaments work. To improvise on a motif and develop ideas, to show the techniques of instruments and to interpret correctly a traditional Persian song we need to know the ornamentations well.
This book contains special step by step exercises to learn how the ornaments work and also traditional songs in different Persian modes. All written in an innovative way to make it easier to touch and memorize them. By the way many times writing all the details is quite complicated but I tried to write almost all ornaments in this book in a way easier to understand. These exercises may be used for other instruments or for research as well.
