Söyler Sanat Academy; Started to provide music education with its first branch opened in Bahçeşehir, Istanbul in 2017, it attracted many students from all over Turkiye in a short time and opened 2 new branches; Beşiktaş in 2018 and Halkalı in 2019, increasing the total number of branches in İstanbul to three.
Söyler Sanat Academy cooperates with the London Music Academy for accreditation program and offers certificate opportunities to students studying within. Söyler Sanat Academy, which also provides consultancy services to many private music schools in different cities of Turkiye, has also included many famous names and great masters in its teaching team such as; Serhan Yasdıman (Guitar), Cafer Nazlıbaş (Kabak Kemane), Polat Akarçay (Dilsiz Kaval), Şaban Gölge (Violin), Murat Süngü (Cello), Kutsal Sütoğlu (Kanun), Ufuk Kaan İçli (Oud), Ayşegül Altıok (Vocal).
However, the pandemic negatively affected the music and education sectors as well as all sectors, and all our branches had to temporarily suspend their activities as of March 2020.
Despite the fact that many educational institutions have started to provide online education during the pandemic process, Söyler Sanat Academy did not hurry to move to this system, which has not been tried before and whose infrastructure was not fully ready, and instead, while preparing its infrastructure, it allowed the members of its teaching staff to give private lessons to their students on an individual basis.
Söyler Sanat Academy, which provides a unique service thanks to its teaching staff consisting of well-known and distinguished names in the field of music, opened Söyler Sanat Academy Doha Branch on May 08, 2022, in the West Bay region of the capital city of Qatar along with the Sinan Söyler Ney Atelier under the supervision of Yusuf İlker Karaaslan and started to serve the international student body effective of the removal of the restrictions that were imposed due to the pandemic, .
Likewise, with the start of the new education period in Turkiye, we have made our plans and program to re-open our our doors at Beşiktaş branch in Istanbul to our esteemed students, as of September 2022.

Beşiktaş, Istanbul Branch - Türkiye
Having taken its place in music education for the first time in 2017, Söyler Sanat Academy opened its Beşiktaş branch in the first quarter of 2018. Gaining a prestigious place in the education and arts community in a short time by gathering experienced teachers who have made a name for themselves in the art community, our academy has become one institution that provides consultancy services to other music schools in different cities of Turkey, and is preferred among music schools thanks to the Training Camps it organizes and the Master Class Workshops it offers. As the staff of Söyler Sanat Academy, which had to close its doors like other educational institutions due to the Covid-19 pandemic at the end of 2020, we are happy to open our doors to our students again with the start of the 2022-2023 academic year after the normalization process.
Söyler Sanat Academy,
West Bay, Doha Branch - Qatar
After the easing of the pandemic measures at the beginning of 2021, during our travels to Qatar, we engaged and had meetings with the Qatar Music Academy, Angham Al Sharq Music School, Qatar Studios, Katara Cultural Village, Turkish Grassroots Qatar, The Turkish Cultural Center Yunus Emre Institute, Qatar Turkish School, Indian Cultural Center managements as well as Qatari and foreign musicians and teachers that are residing in Qatar. We gathered information about the socio-cultural structure and music community in Qatar. As a result of these meetings, we observed that there is a suitable environment for a formation that can synthesize Turkish-Arabic music in our quality, and that instruments of Kanun and Ney, especially Oud, are very popular in Qatar, and we started our work to operate in Qatar.
By determining our trainers who can give music education between 2021-2022, we opened the Doha Branch of Söyler Sanat Academy in the West Bay district, under the supervision of Yusuf İlker Karaaslan, simultaneously with the branch of Sinan Söyler Ney Atelier in Doha , the capital city of Qatar, on May 08, 2022. We opened it to the international student body in Qatar.
We are currently in talks with public and private institutions and organizations in Doha and we are working to expand cooperation opportunities. In addition to the projects we plan to realize in cooperation with The Turkish Cultural Center Yunus Emre Institute and Qatar Turkish School in the 2022-2023 academic year, We foresee that our work will be even more intense after the World Cup, which will be held in Qatar between November 2022 and January 2023. Among our projects, bringing the Yurdal Tokcan Oud Trio Project to Qatar to give a master class and concert after January 2023 is just one of our current goals.
