My name is Ziad. I am Antiochian but I chant in a Romanian Orthodox Church in Montreal Canada. I have taught myself byzantine but only got so far. I was then guided by an experienced byzantine chanter.
I have been chanting for about 8 years as the person accompanying the main chanter as I am always trying to gain more confidence to lead a service. There is a lot to know (the pitch, the notes, synchronization with the priest, the typikon,…). So I am looking to strengthen the area involving the structure of the service.
Looking forward for the course.
