Um Al Hassam
I started learning the keys at a music school in Dublin when I was 7 and went through all the grades with the Victoria College of Music, London. I wrote my first song when I was 15, then picked up the guitar and taught myself how to play the basic chords. I’ve been involved with a number of bands in Ireland and Bahrain, playing keys, bass, guitar, bodhran and singing but above all else I love writing and recording my own songs. I am originally from Dublin but I now live in Bahrain where I teach audio & video production, animation and other digital media courses to Bahraini students.
