Established in 1983, the Saskatchewan Band Association is a registered charity dedicated to the development and promotion of Band music throughout the province. We are open to any individual, group or organization interested in furthering the development of bands in Saskatchewan.
The Association represents community bands, school bands, the Saskatchewan Pipe Band Association, band directors, music educators, band parent associations, students, and education institutions.
Membership in the SBA demonstrates your support of band and the value it adds to the cultural fabric of our communities. Together we present a strong, collective voice, both provincially and nationally, on issues affecting Saskatchewan bands and the Saskatchewan community.

In honour of the SBA's 40th Anniversary year, we commissioned SK Composer Paul Suchan for a very special project. Having developed and delivered the SBA's virtual Composition Courses for developing band composers around the province, Paul was the perfect choice for this project.
Thanks to the special support of the Artists in Communities program from SKArts, and working with students from around the province, Paul has completed a new Composition:
Follow the First Wind.
Follow the First Wind has 4 versions - celebrating SBA's 4 decades and to serve various levels of band:
Beginner - grade 1.5
Intermediate - grade 3
Advanced - grade 5
Jazz - grade 3
To listen to the recordings and for more information about the composition, click HERE.
SBA organization and professional level members can access the music for a limited time for FREE by clicking HERE.
