Saudis have welcomed the Minister of Culture’s decision to issue the first licenses to two musical training institutes in the Kingdom, with a specialized online platform to be launched in 90 days.
In addition to providing cultural and artistic training programs, the platform will allow individuals in the cultural and artistic fields to officially obtain licenses.
The licenses cover different artistic and cultural fields, including theater, music, literature, publishing, translation, and museums.
There are three licenses for music practitioners that cover musicians, music acoustics, and music production.
Many Saudis have acquired their musical knowledge through self-teaching from YouTube or private classes, but that will now change with specialized schools.
