The Classical Learning Resource Center (FB) is offering Introduction to Byzantine Chant for students 12 years and up.  This is a new program and looks like a very valuable resource for those wishing to learn Byzantine Chant.

“Introduction to Byzantine Chant will give students a foundation in basic theory and practice of byzantine chant. Students will study fundamentals of the eight tones used in many Orthodox churches worldwide. Instruction will include plenty of hands on practice. The foundation of instruction will be a series of charts that make the tones approachable and intuitive for various learning styles. We will also study liturgical terminology, service structure, and byzantine notation.

Previous musical experience is helpful, but not necessary. Chant is especially appropriate for those who like to learn music by ear. Introduction to Byzantine Chant is open to students 12 years old and above or by permission of the instructor. Students will be required to sing alone during class. Registration will be limited to 12 students in each class. Students will need to purchase or have access to a copy of the Kazan Vespers music book published by the Antiochian Archdiocese.

Before registering for Introduction to Byzantine Chant please Contact Us to arrange for a brief interview with our chant instructor.”  From the Website-ed.

Holy Trinity Cathedral in Portland also offers a yearly class in Byzantine Chant which has been featured in past posts.  For those who wish to learn more about Chant (Byzantine or “Russian”) please take a look at the several useful links provided on the side of the webpage.

Of all holy works, the education of children is the most holy.
