Learn to Play Persian Tar (The Sultan of Instruments) Like Never Before…

Play Persian Tar to reconnect with your Persian culture. To try the good old things in new settings. We teach Persian Tar to make every Farsi speaker outside of our home country connect with their homeland once again. 

There are as many reasons why people learn to play Persian Tar as there are paths out the door. That’s why at Shad Music Academy, we bring modern day features and make this learning an experience worth remembering.

Characteristics Associated With Tar

Often referred to as the "Târ-e Shirâz" or the Tar from Shiraz, this Persian instrument is known for its characteristic powerful and enchanting sound. These sounds are produced by tinkling the strings using a plectrum. 

The melodies created with Persian Tar are known to eliminate nervousness, decrease headache and at times help with insomnia. Its sound relaxes one’s mood and compels the listener to reflect upon their life. 

Everything You Need to Know About Persian Tar

This long and narrow string instrument comes with 6 wooden pegs that control cords for different notes. 

And that’s not it, the Persian Tar comes with two pairs of shorter strings that lie just beneath the bass and go over small copper bridges on the upper side of the finger board. All of that combined allows the performer to manifest tones that are unique to their taste.

The History that Comes with the Persian Tar

It’s a long necked stringed instrument known as the descendant of Rubab, a similar instrument played extensively in Pakistan and Afghanistan. With its origins dating back to 250 years ago and its recent version developed in the 18th century, the Persian Tar is relatively a recent addition to Persian folklore.
