Al-Musiqa Tajm'ana
الموسيقى تجمعنا

Well known for its hospitality, Jordan accepts refugees from neighboring countries suffering from conflict, resulting in a mosaic of different cultures. Of the ten million people in Jordan, 70% are under 30 years old, and migrants and refugees make up nearly a third of the population.

In response to requests from the music community, we designed a progressive music leadership training. The training supports the development of an infrastructure of organizations and trained music leaders, empowered and equipped to support vulnerable and underserved children through music.

Al-Musiqa Tajm’ana uses music to strengthen resilience, connection, positive identity and belonging in vulnerable and underserved youth and children in Jordan. The program works with children with a refugee background and children from Jordan through a training program for musicians, music students and teachers.

Music leadership training

Since 2021, we collaborate with local initiatives in Jordan to offer music leadership training. The training curriculum is packed with activities and information that can be applied immediately in the trainees’ daily life.

In the summer of 2021, our first group of trainees delivered music workshops during a music summer camp organized by Caritas Jordan in cooperation with Musicians Without Borders. Each trainee delivered 12 music workshops in and around Amman, reaching children with a refugee background, children with disabilities, and women in a shelter.
