The Music Commission of Saudi Arabia and the Arab Oud House, led by the Maestro Naseer Shamma, inaugurated today the Oud House in Riyadh, one of the Arab Oud House’s branches in different parts of the world.

The institution teaches techniques for playing oud and other musical instruments, such as flute, bezek, cello and violin, among others. It helps spread Arabic culture and awareness about the importance of the oud, and builds a global community of professional oud players.
