Target Groups and Beneficiaries

a. Immediate Target Groups:

  1. Young girls and boys, aged from 10 to 18 years old, particularly drawn from under­privileged communities, families and schools. LeBAM currently is providing its activities to about 350 students organized in four centers: Beit Mery, Baskinta, Baakline and Tripoli. This number should increase with the development of new centers throughout Lebanon. It is noteworthy that girls make up more than 50% of students and share in the learning of all instruments, including trumpets, tubas and percussion, wrongly believed by some to be limited to boys and men.
  2. Music teachers and conductors in public and private schools and in specialized music institutions, including the National Conservatoire. There currently are not enough teachers on wind and percussion instruments, nor are there enough conductors of bands, that are all needed to develop the planned activities of LeBAM on the one hand and generally develop music in Lebanon on the other hand. Furthermore, there is also a great need to develop and adapt the teaching pedagogy that can dispense the quality teaching of music in a band setting.
  3. Existing or potential band music composers and arrangers. LeBAM is currently developing band music pieces, especially composed or arranged for its bands at the various levels of musical proficiency (i.e. beginner, intermediate, advanced). The development of such musical works, especially in Lebanese and Arab music, is critical for the success of LeBAM; it is necessary both for teaching and performing music.

b. Ultimate Beneficiaries:

  1. Harmonic Bands in Lebanon, especially the LeBAM network of bands. Existing LeBAM bands, especially the LeBAM National Youth Band, are already setting a benchmark of musical quality and excellence. It is expected that such development will have a spillover effect on existing bands, such as the Army and police bands, some scout based bands and others.
  2. The National Music Conservatoire, especially its current and future music ensembles and orchestra(s). The LeBAM trained music students will become the music teachers and performers in the future, particularly benefitting and boosting the role played by the Conservatoire and the Lebanese Philharmonic Orchestra.
  3. Students’ Families are the group that is most positively impacted by the LeBAM activities as they quickly become supporters of music and the core of a public appreciating orchestral music of varied styles.
  4. The general public. LeBAM is already offering at national and regional level, quality orchestral music, which in time will serve the purpose of developing the general cultural knowledge of the Lebanese population, in addition to providing communities, especially rural, with a great tool for public cultural entertainment.
  5. The public school system. With time, the pedagogy developed by LeBAM to teach music to youth, will benefit the school system, especially public schools.
