Question:

I understand that a recent publication in ARABIC from Ayatullah Sistani 
discusses the issue of Music. In this particular question, the person asks if 
it is permissible to learn to play musical instruments. Please restate the 
question as a translation from the original ARABIC with the answer as a 
translation from the original ARABIC. Please provide a reply as soon as 
possible.

Answer:

The question and answer are as follows:

Q: Is it permissible for a Muslim to send his son to one of the musical
institutes to learn music as an art on the condition that his art will not
be used for a haram [purpose].

A: There is no harm to learn that music which is allowed (Agha says
al-musiqi al-muhallala) in itself, but to send children to musical
institutes, one must safeguard that this will not have negative effects on
their religious upbringing (or one can even translate it as religious
nurturing), and God knows best.
