My name is Zlatan Fazlić and I am delighted, excited and honoured to have been appointed as the new Director of Qatar Music Academy.

Prior to my new appointment, I spent the past 23 years teaching music in the United Kingdom: the last nine as Head of Performing Arts and Director of Music at the Royal Grammar School in Newcastle upon Tyne.

As Director of the QMA it is a real pleasure to welcome you to our website.

At the heart of our Academy is a vibrant community of remarkable musicians who are dedicated to unlocking the musical potential of every student.  Our staff serve not just as teachers, but also as coaches who inspire students’ curiosity and support them on their journey of musical discovery.

We partner with parents to make sure that we capture the duality of our students’ learning experience both at school and at home.  We know every student learns differently and that teaching should be as focused on developing each child’s individual strengths.  At the same time, we are ambitious and hope that our students will be positively engaged and challenged in their musical journeys and aspire to excellence.

We have superb facilities and our excellent location in Katara Village means that we have access to the best cultural sites in Doha close to our Academy: from galleries and museums to theatres and concert halls.

We are also proud of being part of the Qatar Foundation whose support has been invaluable.

All of these ingredients make our Music Academy a special place for our students to learn either Arab or Western Classical music.

I hope you will enjoy exploring our website and seeing what we have to offer.  Please feel free to contact us at any time and we shall be more than happy to answer your queries.

With very best wishes

Zlatan Fazlić

Director of Qatar Music Academy
