Aim and Mission Statement

The Sunshine Coast Youth Band exists to support and help grow the burgeoning youth brass band culture here on the Sunshine Coast. With annual competition entries, community concerts, and a school year orientated practice schedule; SCYB promotes a fun and engaging way to learn and develop brass instrument and band expertise, without overwhelming practice commitments which could interfere with school.

SCYB promotes musical development in young brass musicians in the key areas of performance, practice, punctuality, and passion to bring together the Coast’s best youth brass players to represent our region and state at the world recognised Australian Band Championships. The band recognises that important and influential musicians begin at a young age and the Sunshine Coast Youth Band exists to foster the amazing talent that we have here on the Sunshine Coast.
