The British Youth Band Association (BYBA) is a national organisation that promotes and supports young musicians through a range of activities.

It was established in 1937 to provide an opportunity for young people to learn to play brass, woodwind or percussion instruments.

Since then, the BYBA has grown into an organisation that supports musicians at every stage of their musical journey, from beginners to professionals.

This includes those who are interested in playing music as a hobby, those who want to learn how to perform or teach music professionally and those who want to work in the music industry.

The BYBA currently has over 7000 members across England and Wales.
