Easiest chant to learn?
« on: January 14, 2011, 01:11:49 AM »
Does anyone know what would be the easiest style of chant to learn for private use?
I stopped posting here in August 2011 because of stark disagreement with the policies of the administration and moderating team of the forums. If you desire, feel free to PM me, message me on Facebook (link in profile), or email me: cddombrowski@gmail.com

I've sung my whole life, and I think prostopinije, plain chant, is the easiest to learn.

I would agree, but I am biased that being my tradition!

You should learn the style of your tradition. Then once you have done that you can explore other traditions.

I don't know the answer; each has its own technical challenges. I might suggest visiting Ancient Faith Radio online and listening to the tutorials of Stephen Khouri to see what Byzantine Chant is like. He has a rather nice series on it.
