Welcome to the Bournemouth Youth Marching Band.
The Band is a registered charity. We started in 1989 as the Talbot Corps of Drums and reformed as the Bournemouth Youth Marching Band in 2013.
Our youngest musicians are just 8 years old and many new recruits join the Band with no previous musical experience.
The Band is also a great opportunity for more experienced young musicians to broaden and develop their playing skills.
BYMB is much more than a marching band. We have a multi functional capability and we perform in concerts, parades, displays and tattoos.
We use brass, woodwind and percussion instruments to play great music from a broad range of genres.
Our repertoire is regularly refreshed for our
events throughout the year.
We provide a
safe meeting place,instruments, music, uniform, tuition, training and
the performance opportunities.
In addition to Band we provide all the activities and facilities expected of a youth organisation. Our youth members are at the heart of everything we do.
All this makes us unique in the local area.
During the last couple of years four of our members have been accepted into the UK Armed Forces. One is now with the Mounted Band of the Household Cavalry, Royal Corps of Army Music and two are with the Royal Marines Band Service. Join BYMB and we can help you turn a hobby into a professional musical career.
