Our goal is the protection of the cultural heritage and the cultural education for improvement of social conditions for children & adults of different origins, education, and social backgrounds in terms of equal opportunities and peaceful coexistence in national/international contexts. The purpose is to connect individuals & cultures with music across borders and language barriers as soft power diplomacy. Cultural competencies empower softskills and help building fair and sustainable societies. Our students are led to give something back to "the world" by carrying out projects and contributing to WBA Benefit Projects.

Worldwide the situation for professional musicians changed in the last years because of the modifications on the cultural market. In a time when even orchestra positions are not save any more and orchestras have difficulties to find highly qualified young musicians in brass music, the requirements for professional musicians are increasing continuously.
The aim of the WBA & EBA is to build up a world-wide sustainable musical education system for all brass instruments from amateurs to students and professional musicians with masterclasses, workshops, concerts etc...
Maestro Zubin Mehta:
"I profoundly agree with the aims of the European Brass Association and assure the organizers my support, with the purpose to preserve our cultural heritage and to give young people a sustainable and high class education for a future, rich in perspectives."
