BBANZ is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to promote the teaching and performance of brass and percussion instruments through brass bands. The Association represents 51 community-based brass bands and seven District Associations throughout New Zealand. That’s over 1800 brass and percussion musicians of all ages actively involved in making music.

BBANZ supports community bands by organising the annual National Championships, training and education programmes as well as bringing together the best players to form representative bands such as the National Secondary School Band, the National Youth Band and the National Band of New Zealand.
