HSJB seeking new Musical Director

Position Vacant – Musical Director – Junior Band


The Hyde Street Youth Band (HSYB) is a community base brass band located in Footscray, Melbourne. We have three bands: Training Band, Junior Band and Youth Band. HSYB is an incorporated not-for-profit community arts organisation, managed by an active volunteer committee.

HSYB needs a Musical Director for our Junior Band (HSJB). HSJB currently has about 15 members across all the brass instruments, and percussion. Members are generally primary and early secondary age. Each year the Junior Band competes as a junior C grade band in the State band competition, regional eisteddfods and performs at several local community festivals.

HSYB shares a band room, some instruments and equipment with Footscray Yarraville City Band. The two band organisations have a good relationship and perform together at the annual Yarraville Carols in the Park.

Our rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings from 6.00pm to 6.45pm.

This position comes with an honorarium. It is anticipated that this position will work closely with the MDs for the Youth Band and the Training Band.

For more information and a Position Description please contact Winifred Beevers (President HSYB).
