2. Is there a registration fee?

Yes, a registration fee of AED 100/- applies to all new students enrolling in our music and vocal programs.

3. How old do children need to be to start your music and dance programs?

Adults can start any instrument at any time. Their success is based on how committed they are to practicing. For children, starting at the right age is a key element to the success of their lessons. Children who are older than the suggested earliest starting age usually do very well. The following are guidelines we have found to be successful in determining how young a child can start taking music and dance lessons.

Piano/Keyboard:
The youngest age that we start children in private piano lessons is 5 years old. At this age they have begun to develop longer attention spans and can retain material with ease.

Guitar:
Classical, Acoustic and Electric: Guitar playing requires a fair amount of pressure on the fingertips from pressing on the strings, so 7 years old is the earliest we recommend for these lessons.

4. Is parking available around the Buddy’s Music & Dance Institute venues?

Yes. There are 2 dedicated customer parking lots in Cluster Y that allow Free parking for 2 hours. Additionally there are Free parking lots adjoining Cluster Y and nest to Carrefour Market. There is also a paid parking lot available next to Damas. However, Buddy’s Management does not take responsibility for the same. It is usually best to plan ahead and arrive early to avoid missing time in class. 

5. Can we try a class before we sign up?

Yes, we provide a Free 30 minutes trial class for our music & vocal courses. 

6. Does my child have to audition to join Buddy's Music and Dance Institute?

Children assessments are mandatory to ensure that they are sufficiently mature to follow the instructions issued in a session and have the physical control which are required for certain types of Music Instruments.

7. Do you have recitals?

Yes! This is announced to the students & parents on a regular basis. 

8. How can I pay?
