Darebin City Brass is also famous for nurturing young talent.  The Youth Group is nicknamed “Jack’s Juniors”, after local Darebin legend, Jack Kelly OAM, who has coordinated the Youth Group for many years.  Darebin City Brass provides quality, affordable music tuition within a group setting. Learning to play a brass instrument is a great life skill and your child will form many lifelong friendships!

The Youth group performs regularly for the local community, including performances at primary schools, services for Anzac Day and Remembrance Day, the Darebin Music Feast and Carols at Odyssey House.
