As well as lessons within CMA, Affiliated Schools in Dubai use CMA as their main port of call for instrumental lessons within school hours – this encompasses private tuition, small group teaching, and small to large ensembles.
Through the combined efforts of both the teachers and the students, CMA has pioneered numerous music initiatives that have raised the music appreciation levels in the UAE. CMA is also home to several community groups that gather to rehearse on a weekly
basis, bringing together musicians and music lovers from around the Emirates. These include The Dubai Chamber Orchestra, The Dubai Wind Band, Dubai City Sound, The Nassim Al Saba Choir, and the Dubai POPS Orchestra.
CMA is also very proud to sponsor the Arabian Youth Orchestra and their endeavours to engage young musicians and encourage the youth of the Middle East to shine in the concert halls of the UAE and around the world – music starts with the youth and
this is a fantastic initiative to assist CMA in “Bringing Music to Everyone”.
