About The National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain

Why we exist

The National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain (Youth and Children's Bands) is one of the UK's finest brass bands for children and teenagers.

The Band exists to give exceptionally gifted young brass instrumentalists the opportunity to perform advanced music and receive the highest quality teaching, care and help to provide the brass band movement and the music profession with the next generation of brass players. At all times the Band's first priority is the safety and well-being of the brass musicians of the future.

Not only does the Band provide talented youngsters with opportunities to play brass music to the highest standard, but also to improve their musicianship and musical horizons.

"My final course has been humbling, inspiring and highly enjoyable. Though I am not pursuing music as a career, my time with the Band has been invaluable, something I will always cherish. Looking back I now see this has not been a long lesson in how to play a brass instrument, but in how to pursue my goals, conduct myself and live my life. Thank you."

In 2022, to celebrate our 70th anniversary, we will hold a range of activities which will include alumni events, attendance at major brass band festivals and events, an Easter course held in Yorkshire (where the organisation was founded), summer courses in Taunton and a number of performances around the UK including a celebration concert at the Royal College of Music, conducted by Guest Conductor Martyn Brabbins and a concert with our partners Her Majesty's Band of the Royal Marines.
