About Us

The Traditional Youth Marching Bands Association has been working to promote the youth marching band activity for more than 30 years. TYMBA’s aims are ‘the advancement of education of the public in music; in particular, traditional style youth marching bands and the advancement of education of members and leaders’ of bands. In order to achieve this, TYMBA seeks to provide ‘performance and networking opportunities’ which include, but are not confined to showcases, concerts, contests, massed band events and training.

In furtherance of its aims, TYMBA has built links with the Royal Marines and the British Army.
