CYBB - The Cornish Charity That Helps Young Brass Band Musicians Take Their Playing to New Heights

Band members benefit every year from two four-day residential courses. These are directed by leading conductors from the brass band world, and outstanding levels of performance are achieved in the Gala Concerts that provide the climax to every course.



Please help us to help produce the musicians of tomorrow.
We now have to raise over 20,000 a year to fund this work. 100% of every 1 you donate will help our young musicians.

All our Trustees and local tutors give their time without charge.

Grace and Matthew invite you to join the band.

The Cornwall Youth Brass Band - Christmas 2017

The Cornwall Youth Brass Band – Christmas 2018 with Guest Conductor Russell Gray

The Cornwall Youth Brass Band (CYBB) is the oldest County Youth Band in the United Kingdom.

It was founded in 1955 and held its first Residential Course in 1959, the start of a long tradition, which has continued without a break until the present time. Indeed the Band now holds two courses a year, at Christmas and Easter, each culminating in a Public Concert.
