The idea for Brass for Peace in its current form was hatched at Talitha Kumi.

After a concert given by German brass musicians in October 2007 that was enthusiastically received by the pupils, the principal at that time, Dr. Georg Dürr, expressed his wish that every child should have to opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument. Prof. Monika Hofmann took up this idea and implemented it for brass instruments.

Existing contacts were activated and new contacts made in the Bethlehem region and since January 2008, German volunteers have been giving lessons at the school.

Every year at the beginning of the new school year, a workshop is held at Talitha Kumi to help former pupils remember their instrument after the long summer break and gradually introduce new pupils to a brass instrument.
