Youth Tuition Summer NYBBS
We did it
On 24th December 2018 we successfully raised £2,500 with 46 supporters in 28 days

To allow our younger members to take part in a residential course of Expert Tuition with National Youth Brass Bands of Scotland.

New stretch target

Any extra funding would mean we could send our talented younger players to the Easter session also.


Forfar Instrumental Band has brought Brass Band music to Angus and Tayside for generations. We were one of the founding members of SBBA (Scottish Brass Band Association) in 1895.

Our Band is made up of 30 players in varying age and ability, but more importantly we are family friendly with half of our Band being siblings or children of existing members.

This year we have recruited 5 new younger players. (The youngest is 10 and the eldest 14.) This takes our tally of young players to ten. As music tuition is being cut in our local schools these 10 young players have been given lessons on a voluntary basis from existing band members.

If our Brass Band is to continue in the future it is vital to have high quality experienced players.

  • We would love to be able to fund all of our young players to attend The NYBBS (National Youth Brass Bands of Scotland) Residential Summer School where they will receive expert tuition over one week from the Musical Directors of some of the top Brass Bands in the UK. 

A Fantastic Opportunity!
