Symphobia Music Academy (SMA) through its vision and mission, works to promote cross-cultural musical dialogue and exchange, especially between contemporary and more traditional and folkloric styles of music through its diverse local and national faculty.
We believe in the power of music to transcend linguistic, economic, cultural and intellectual barriers and envision a local-to-global music community in which all people, genres, cultures, instruments and sounds are in a state of dynamic collaboration and learning.
Music education at SMA is viewed as holistic learning experience that is important at every stage of a personal's life and development. We believe in developing all-rounded students with a deep awareness and understanding of musical diversity. The Institute also works to create a body of knowledge through evidence that is able to sensitively represent the many positive effects of musical education and learning as comprehensively as possible.
