This study aims to provide insight into three singing teachers’ views, opinions and experiences on the subject of classic Arabic singing and its craftsmanship. The study is based primarily on interviews with voice teachers living in Amman (Jordan), and the observation of singing lessons, which are complementary to the interviews. Moreover, I have chosen to create a solid background and theory chapter to specify the topic and what challenges an Arabic singing teacher faces. The study elucidated from a qualitative research perspective, as my interviews and observations requires this form of information processing. The result section describes the relationship between interviews and observations but also the relationship between the informants' ways of relating to the subject of Arab singing tuition. My final discussion describes my own horizon of understanding in terms of a good singing teacher. The conclusion suggests that vocal learning in Amman based on an ancient tradition in the current situation begins to loosen, with Western influence and the Arabs' more affirmative attitude toward music.
