NYBBS
  The NYBBS offer wonderful opportunities for young players

Following the news that Ian Porthouse is to lead the 2019 Easter Course of the National Youth Brass Bands of Scotland (NYBBS), applications are now open for players aged from the age of 9 to 22 to enjoy the unique experience.

Senior Band

The senior National Youth Brass Band is the premier level youth ensemble of the organisation and will be led by Ian alongside a tutorial team of leading instrumentalists and clinicians.

NYBBS is regularly involved with high-profile performance opportunities and has enjoyed numerous international tours including acclaimed visits to Germany and Japan.

Reserve Band

Meanwhile, the National Youth Reserve Brass Band of Scotland will be conducted by John Boax, and offers players aged 14 -22 inclusive the opportunity to further nurture their playing skills as they develop towards the senior band.

It offers its members plenty of inspiration, support and opportunities to progress, guided by a collection of highly experienced musicians and additional performance opportunities, making it an ideal stepping stone up to the next stage.
