i3zif for Music
http://www.i3zif.com

i3zif.com was founded by Bisher Abu Taleb , a Guitarist, vocalist, and business development professional, and Ayham Abu Hammad, a percussions player and a Video Editor. Both were members of the Jordanian Musical Group Rum Tareq Al Nasser.

With the growth of e-learning, the solution to music education became obvious, and having faced the pains of learning music in the traditional way many years earlier and seeing the same pain continue to exist, Bisher and Ayham knew something needed to be done.

After researching and studying the best methods of online music education worldwide, i3zif.com succeeded in producing video tutorials of the highest quality and recruiting some of the best Arab Musicians from Jordan, Syria, and Egypt. The website currently offers video courses for Guitar, Oud, Piano, Darbuka, Arabic Singing, Nai, Violin, and Qanun.

i3zif.com has also launched the program “i3zif fi Madrasati” in partnership with Her Majesty Queen Rania’s education initiative “Madrasati” that provides music education in public schools in Jordan through granting access to i3zif’s tutorials
