About Oud for Guitarists Team Learn Oud

We are Navid Goldrick, a professional Middle Eastern Oud player, and Navid’s sidekick and an Middle Eastern dancer, Mao Murakami.


Who is Navid Goldrick?


I’m a Persian musician that taught myself how to play Arabic Oud, and I am here to show you the tools so that you can teach yourself the Arabic Oud too.

I’m like you… I didn’t grow up in the Middle East, and I have never been to Iran, but I managed to master Persian music in an authentic way. One day, I decided that Persian style Oud playing didn’t satisfy my hunger for knowledge of the Oud, so I decided to teach myself Arabic music and Arabic Oud style.


If I can do it, you can too! Learn Oud online


When I wanted to buy my first Oud… I was about 14. It was 1997 and I had no connections to the Arab community or the Arab world. I didn’t really know anything about the Oud except that I was in love with the sound, probably like you are now.


OudforGuitarists is here to help you find your first Oud, and help you teach yourself how to play. 


Why should you give OudforGuitarists Premium Courses a try?


As a musician, performer, and recording artist for the last 20 years, I know exactly what you’re up against. I gained a lot of insight nurturing an eclectic musical background and came to the Oud after mastering the Persian Santour, learning the Guitar (Jimi Hendrix was and still is my Guitar Hero), and dabbling in Trombone.


You are going to gain my knowledge and secrets of how to play the Middle Eastern music on the Oud in an effective and authentic way.


Even though I took private lessons to learn Oud. There was still so much I had to figure out by myself. The Premium Courses that we offer are a culmination of my unique learning experiences packed with all the tools you need to learn Oud by yourself.
