Early Music Education

Together with The Palestinian Medical Relief Society, we administer the Edward Said Musical Kindergarten. Barenboim-Said Ramallah implements the music program, “Education through Music”, at the school whose aim is to identify musical talent at an early age. The KG currently has 46 students between the ages of 3-5. Every week the children receive 90 minutes of music instruction. They are taught to sing and to explore with musical instruments. The purpose of this is to lay the foundation for musical expression. Teachers are specifically trained to identify talent by observing the children during the sessions and ultimately encouraging them to learn to play an instrument.
