IBP’s vision incorporates education in a global perspective. Every event and interaction is an opportunity for educating and learning, and in that sense, every concert given is educational. IBP is also committed to reaching out to young and all by offering lectures, master-classes, tours, creative and professional consulting, as well as furthering research, publications of articles and relevant commentary, supporting the publication of books and the making of documentary films, and other educational media.

IBP has from the start been committed to educational outreach and direct interaction with students of any age. It is IBP’s intention to keep bringing Beethoven into schools for presentations on the composer adjusted to any age group, as well as to organize and participate in masterclasses for talented music students at the pre-college, college and graduate levels. Beethoven is an inspiring historical figure as well as one of the most important composers of all times, and knowing and understanding Beethoven should be part of any person’s general education, and an especially major part of a music student’s education.
