Bournemouth Youth Marching Band

Amici Per Musicam - Friends Through Music

Introducing BYMB

Welcome to the Bournemouth Youth Marching Band.

The Band's youngest members are just 8 years old and we provide training for beginners. BYMB is a great opportunity for experienced young musicians to 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, training and the performance schedule.

We have our own Youth Awards Programme which recognises and rewards commitment, effort and achievement.

If you are interested in joining the band please go to the Join Us page.
