Naseer Shamma is an Iraqi artist and a distinguished oud player, born in 1963, in Kut, Iraq. His graduation in 1987 from the Institute of Music Studies in Baghdad was the start of a long array of achievements in his musical career, specifically with the oud instrument.

Established in 2008 by Department of Culture and Tourism - Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi), the school is dedicated to the preservation of the songs and techniques associated with the oud and other important instruments in the UAE such as the qanun, cello, violin and rebabah.
