Brisbane International Youth Music Festival 2018 is a non-for-profit organisation dedicated to promoting culturally educated and rich future generation of young people.

Music is the only universal language that brings and unites people from all walks of life regardless of their cultural, religious and socio-economic backgrounds. This the first language that is understood and responded by newly born babies.

The benefits of music education in health, social life, education, cognitive have been long researched and proved to be invaluable and emmense.

  • “Musicians are found to have superior working memory compared to non-musicians (Berti, et al., 2006; Pallesen et al., “Cognitive Control in Auditory Working Memory Is Enhanced in Musicians,” PLOS One, June 15, 2010).
  • Musical experience strengthens many of the same aspects of brain function that are impaired in individuals with language and learning difficulties
  • Adults who receive formal music instruction as children have more robust brainstem responses to sound than peers who never participate in music lessons ” (


BIYMF volunteers are highly dedicated experienced professional enthusiasts who encourage and motivate young people to become culturally rich regardless of what career path they are going to choose in their lives.
