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.
We welcome young musicians of all standards
including beginners and we teach them everything that they need to know,
The Band is also a great opportunity for more experienced young
musicians to broaden and develop their playing skills.
As a wind band we use brass, woodwind and percussion instruments to play great music from traditional military and brass band marches through to contemporary pop songs. Our repertoire is regularly refreshed for our
events throughout the year.
We play in a wide range of performances including concerts, arena displays, carnivals and parades. This makes us unique in the local area.
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.
Adult membership (18+) is for experienced musicians and is subject to a role being available, audition, references and a DBS check. The Band's Adult members help the younger members develop their music making skills.
During the last year three of our members have been accepted into the UK Armed Forces. One is with the Royal Corps of Army Music and two are with the Royal Marines Band Sevice. Join BYMB and we can help you turn a hobby into a professional musical career.
