Converging Cultures

International Public Online Masterclass with Richard Durrant and Naseer Shamma

Spring 2022 

Are you a guitar or oud student, amateur musician, teacher or a music lover?  If so, join us for Converging Cultures – a unique weekend of masterclasses, discussions presentations and performances, with Richard Durrant (Guitar) and a leading oud player.

The two day Masterclass will allow you to extend and refine your musicianship, understand the nature of evolving identities, explore converging and diverging cultures and their respective instruments and discover how musical influences intertwine to create the music we hear. 

Open to all music lovers, whether active Masterclass participants or auditors! Auditors will be able to listen to all the classes and debates and field questions.
