In these two videos I demonstrate the same ayahs being recited in different tune patterns (maqamat). Videos such as these will inshaAllah help you to differentiate between the different maqamat. Also, these videos will inshaAllah help you to appreciate how the same ayah can be recited in different tune patterns, creating a different sound/feel while at the same time maintaining proper tajweed. The maqamat really are quite flexible — they are not rigid tune patterns — so a good reciter should be able to recite beautifully while maintaining proper tajweed, and should never think of compromising correct tajweed in order to achieve a (perceived) better sound.

Here’s the first video, where I recite from Surah al-Baqarah (ayahs 21-22). I recite in the maqamat known as Bayati, Ajam, and Nahawand:

And here’s the second video, where I recite from the beginning of Surah Muzzammil. I demonstrate maqam bayati, maqam hijaz, maqam saba, maqam sika, and lastly, maqam nahawand:

Enjoy! I pray that these video demonstrations help you to learn and differentiate between the different maqamat/tunes used in Quranic recitation.
