1 - Recognise Instruments for Bellydance

Instruments bellydancers need to recognise to help identify the music, country of origin and more.

This course will help you identify the most commonly used instruments within bellydance music. Recognising instruments can both inform you dance and help you identify styles.

We give you lots of examples and mini quizzes to help you develop your 'ear'. This will give you much more confidence within your dance as it will help you develop range and recognise styles.
