What do our students say about our courses?..

"My son absolutely loves learning how to sing and drum with Ustadha Sakinah. He has taken beginners courses and private classes all online. Ustadha Sakinah is an incredibly friendly, kind and patient teacher who makes the lessons so much fun. She makes gentle corrections without ever undermining his confidence and is good natured with him whenever he is chattering away about something unrelated! She teaches very calmly, effectively and clearly. My son has learned Tala al Badru alayna, the Qasida burda and some other lovely nasheeds - and he has taught his younger brothers too! It's wonderful to hear the children remembering Allah SWT and our Prophet SAW."
