About the Dublin Youth Brass Band
An Opportunity for ALL students
The Dublin Youth Brass Band course provides a unique opportunity for all students to experience a traditional British Brass Band. Beginning students can be challenged with secondary and tertiary parts, while more advanced students can be challenged with solo parts and unique instruments like the soprano cornet and flugel horn. Low brass students can either play music in bass clef, or take the challenge of learning treble clef like the adult brass bands.
What makes the Dublin Youth Brass Band different?
Unlike many other supplementary groups for music students, the Dublin Youth Brass Band is an inclusive group. Students of all ages and abilities are welcome.
Additionally, many youth music groups only include students. In the Dublin Youth Brass Band, students will have the opportunity to sit near members of the award-winning Dublin Silver Band (DSB) and newly-formed Dublin Metro Brass (DMB). Members of DSB and DMB serve as role models and tutors. Some of the best music lessons come not from direct instruction, but sitting next to quality players!
