RIYADH: Renowned Egyptian violinist Mahmoud Sorour has begun teaching the  official lessons at Riyadh’s music institute.

The musician, at the request of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, has set up the institute with an aim  to train 50 Saudi violinists to a level that will allow them to perform at a new opera house in Jeddah, due to be completed by 2022.

At his institute, set up with support and sponsorship from the Saudi government, Sorour led three classes on Saturday, with 5 students in each. 

The institute has received hundreds of inquiries about lesson availability, particularly from women.

Initially, the music students learn to handle the violin, as well as receive instruction on music theory and note-reading, in order to get the most out of their lessons with Sorour.
