Hi,

I am pursuing my doctorate at Rutgers University in American Studies, with a specialization in Language Education. My studies have given me a better understanding of language analysis (phonology, morphology and syntax), and they have provided me with extensive exposure to the methods of second-language acquisition.

My work and studies have helped define my teaching philosophy, which I’d like to share with you. From the start, I knew that teaching grammar and sentence structure alone in an Arabic-language class was destined to fail. Students would never learn to internalize the language, nor would they understand much about the life of the language – its sensibilities, its nuances and its extraordinary depth and breadth. Instead, I instinctively knew that Arabic must be taught in the context of culture. “Culture” is broad, amorphous, conflicting and all-encompassing… so where does an instructor begin? On day one. From the way students are taught to greet each other to learning the diverse dress of Arab-speaking peoples to discerning what is humorous or offensive in Arab-speaking societies, every aspect of lesson planning should incorporate culture. In this way, students are exposed to the social thoughts and values of our diverse people and communities. Students learn to be keen observers of our culture (or more accurately, cultures) through the acquisition of Arabic, which is especially valuable given the tension and miscommunication between the West and the Middle East.

Arabic is dynamic and creative, thus Arabic teachers must be dynamic and creative in their teaching of the language. They need to be able to manipulate, simplify and attempt to individualize vast knowledge for learners. An instructor shou

Mohamed A. Alsiadi received his B.A. from the Damascus Music Conservatory, where he specialized in oud performance and conducting. He studied with renowned oudist Nadim Al Darwish, the son of composer and scholar Ali Al Darwish, for many years. He performs on an Iraqi oud made by the oud master Yaroub Mohammed Fadel. A regular guest of international festivals both as a soloist and chamber musician, Alsiadi has recently performed at the Royal Conservatory in Toronto, the national auditorium in Madrid, the historic Nidaros Cathedral in Norway, GUST University in Kuwait, and Merkin Hall in New York City. Other highlights include his debuts at Vienna Konserthaus in 2012 and Carnegie Hall in 2015 with The Malek Jandali Trio, Skoll World Forum 2016, Sydney Opera House, and Richmond Folk Festival. Alsiadi is the founder of The Aleppo Ensemble and is presently working to finalize his new album titled "Music of Aleppo". Alsiadi has also directed several concert series and festivals on Arabic music, and he has developed an extensive and exceptionally varied catalogue of Arabic music recordings. At various international conferences, he has presented research on song forms central to Middle Eastern music, namely Arabic-sung poetry called qasida, and the Aleppian Wasla, a song-form that is one of the foundations of Syrian songs. Each year, Alsiadi supports concerts for young audiences, and his performance groups offer master classes and other performance opportunities for our public schools and universities. Alsiadi is a dedicated professor committed to educating our youth about Middle Eastern chamber music and introducing students to the joys of the Aleppian Wasla, a traditional genre of Arab music. Alsiadi currently teaches master classes in the U.S. and abroad.
