Our Philosophy

Your Child. Our Focus.

Every child is an individual. No two are alike. Each learns in their own way. That’s why we devote utmost attention to yours. At Qatar Music Academy, we ensure low student to teacher ratios with small classes. Because one size never fits all.

We Are Family

We’d like to keep you informed about your child’s progress, new opportunities, or just say hello. Likewise, our doors are always open. Share your thoughts and ideas with us.

Duty. Truth. Virtue.

Above good grades and great music, we shape character. As a member of our family, your child will be established in ethics and grace. As alumni, they will make positive contributions to society.

Heritage Honoured

Our cherished birthright, we are committed to cultivate Qatar’s traditions of music and folkloric art amongst the new generations.

One for All. All for One.

That’s the spirit at Qatar Music Academy. Regardless of race, language or religion, everyone is an equal. We actively promote cultural exchanges, to break barriers down. In diversity, we embrace unity.
