There are varaities of tuning-systems in the world of music, related to the different traditions, cultures and geographic areas.
We can find different tuning systems in just one country or even in small regions. On the other hand, we would not find many tuning-systems, or big differences in tuning-systems, between big geographic countries . Sometimes we can find a logical connection between certain cultures to have similarities in tuning-systems. however, this similarity can also be found between some cultures have nothing in common and they have no close geographic connection.

In this seminar we will study different selected tuning-systems from the world and the various factors which influenced them. Further, the study will focus on comparing between them from different points of view.
