The sky is the limit for this 8-year-old Emirati talented powerhouse, who dreams of leading an orchestra at Dubai Opera someday.

This is Fatima Al Raqbani, a talented violinist who first picked up the instrument aged 5 and hasn’t looked back since.

The young Emirati aspires to be a composer one day, with her musical piece echoing in the halls of the Dubai Opera.

Her mother, Aysha Al Mazrui, tells Dubai Post that her daughter’s passion for music and the violin sees her practice daily to develop her skills.

But the passion for music does not overshadow her studies, Al Mazrui is quick to point out.

She says: ‘My daughter is an outstanding student and she is very keen to focus on her homework first, before practicing her strumming.’
