About

LeBAM aims to establish as many bands as possible throughout Lebanon, particularly in rural and poor areas, depending on the development of available instruments, funds and growth in number of competent teachers and interested students.

The most important vector for band development will be the establishment of regional centers dedicated for the teaching of band instruments (Band Music Centers or “BMC”), bringing quality musical teaching close to the students. Every such center will indeed develop its own band, but also teach enough students in its own area of activity, with targeted surrounding towns, thus allowing it to become a nursing-ground for many other community based harmonic bands and other ensembles.

BMCs will be organized and managed as branches of LeBAM, thus allowing for the appropriate local governance and sustainable funding of local bands, that will ultimately include the musicians themselves, members of the community (particularly those interested in the teaching and promotion of music), patrons and friends.

LeBAM hopes to develop 10 branches in the future, covering all the geographic areas of Lebanon: Beirut, Mount Lebanon, North, South and Bekaa.

So far, LeBAM includes three branches:

  1. Beit-Mery, Metn in Mount Lebanon (covering the town of Beit Mery and its vicinity, including the towns of Ain Saade, Mansourieh, Broummana, Roumieh and Baabdat).
  2. Baskinta, Metn in Mount Lebanon (covering the town of Baskinta and its vicinity).
  3. Jdeideh, Metn in Mount Lebanon (covering the coast area of Metn starting from Sin el Fil, Dekwaneh, to Antelias and Dbayeh).
  4. The LeBAM Committee received many proposals to establish BMC’s in many areas in Lebanon, especially in Sour, West Beirut, Baakline, Batroun…
