The North American Brass Band Summer School (NABBSS) was co-founded in 2014 by David Childs, Robert Childs and Craig Roberts – former Assistant Director of the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo. Based on the highly successful summer school models well established in the United Kingdom, NABBSS takes place in the dynamic waterfront city of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada – a city bestowed with the distinction of being named in the top-ten tourist destinations ‘on the rise’ globally.
