Group and individual lessons are offered for absolute beginners and advanced students in ARK premises in Acton.

The Oud is one the oldest instruments of human history. Originated in Southern Mesopotamia (modern Iraq) 5000 years ago, its use has expanded all over the Middle-East and Europe, being the ancestor of most plucked instrument like the Western lute.

Its beautiful and rich sound is fundamental for the expressive and spiritual music shared by so many countries and cultures in the Middle East. That's why it is known as the “Sultan of all instruments”.
