What is the course about?

Music played an important role in the daily life of ancient Greece. They used musical instruments that they made with natural materials such as Lyra, flute, the flute of Pan, Tympanaki and the guitar of Apollo. Pictures of these instruments will be shown and their sounds will be demonstrated.
