The Ultimate Qanun Guide 

Get started with my Top Untold Secrets which will Enhance Your Qanun Journey in a Huge Way! 
(For new and experienced qanunists) 
Here is my story
It all happened in the back seat of a taxi. The driver was listening to a qanun recording which took my breath away. I told him with all the enthusiasm of an 8 year old that this is what I want to learn. He laughed and told me that the qanun is for men and that I should forget about it. 
I then developed an international career performing at the world's top venues and festivals and I started teaching students from all over the world. Winning awards, receiving rave reviews and reaching millions of people  from playing the qanun is amazing. 

But what is even more amazing is that through playing the qanun, I found love and connection with people beyond my wildest dreams.  But things weren't always easy! 
Even though I did what I thought was the right thing and signed up to study qanun at the High Institute of Music in Damascus, things didn't click. 

I slowly began to understand that there is something fundamentally outdated with the traditional ways of teaching qanun. 

Which is why I am on a mission to Demystify Arabic Music and help you fulfil you qanun dreams the fun fast and easy way!

I wondered if it was actually possible to learn such a complex instrument without having the teacher physically by your side. Or even if it was possible at all to learn this instrument, especially when I hadn't played a melodic instrument before, and I couldn't read music. There were many who told me not to even bother trying. «One of the most difficult instruments in the world», I was told. However, all my worries was gone after I started to learn with Maya. 

Just do it! Whatever your level is, Maya has a lot to offer. She shares generously all her knowledge and experiences from a lifetime of playing the qanun, she is open to all questions, and she never stopped until she made sure I had understood her answers. She has a unique ability to make complex issues understandable, even for a non-arab non-musician beginner.

 I am forever grateful to Maya for her encouragements and for showing me the way.
