The center offers a range of classes such as singing and learning how to play oriental and western instruments including oud, cello, qanun and violin.
It will soon offer classes to teach playing the ney (flute), drum and riq (daf).
The center’s programs are suitable for both amateurs as well as talented musicians who seek to enhance their skills to build a career in music.
In addition to music lessons, the center includes several facilities, such as rehearsal and recording studios, which individuals and institutions can rent.
The Kingdom issued the first license for two music institutes to operate in the Kingdom in December 2020.
