Syrian Guitarist, Composer, and Arranger
My musical journey began around 2004 or 2005 when I was a 19-year-old aspiring guitarist. In less than two years, I had already tackled many classical and flamenco pieces, which was a truly exhilarating experience.
Then, in 2008, I decided to embark on a more structured path to master guitar techniques and music arranging. It was during this time that I seriously began to contemplate creating my own album. As I delved into the intricate world of arranging music, my skills continued to grow.
In 2011, I took the leap and started writing and recording my own small music compositions. By the end of 2012, I decided to share some of these creations, linking them to my home country. The incredible reactions and support from fans during this period sowed the seeds for my first album.
From there, I carried my personal compositions forward into what would become my second album. It's important to note that I've been entirely self-taught.
I believe that anyone with a dream can achieve it through patience and hard work. This is particularly important because I want to inspire young people who may not believe in their ability to realize their dreams.
I didn't have access to high-level music institutes or specialized training centers. Instead, I turned to books and conducted intensive research to learn and grow. It's truly a wonderful feeling to be able to pour my passion for the orchestra and guitar into my work.
I have a strong belief in the orchestra's power to convey deep emotions. When I'm surrounded by numerous musical instruments, it's as if I'm in a bustling city where everyone speaks the universal language of music.
I draw inspiration from international artists like Yanni and Jesse Cook, who have unique methods of arranging and playing music. To me, the beauty lies in their distinct styles and the emotions they evoke. My own work is a fusion of simple guitar melodies intertwined with intricate orchestral arrangements, all wrapped in the rich and evocative textures of the East.
