The National Music Consultative Committee (NMCC) provides advice to the NBCA and State Governing Bodies on matters relating to music and musical repertoire.Its creation arose from difficulties faced by some National Championships Organising Committees in obtaining advice on Test Music selections. However, after discussion at the 2000 NBCA Conference, delegates felt that the scope for an advisory committee was much wider, particularly in the identification and grading of new music compositions and arrangements.There is no intention for the NMCC to interfere with the operations of each State’s own Music Advisory Board. State bodies are free to obtain advice from the NMCC but are not obligated to do so. The NBCA believes it has added to the structure, not duplicated a part of it.The NMCC consists of a Chairperson, two members with a detailed understanding of music for brass bands and 2 members with a detailed understanding of music for concert bands. As the membership of the committee shows, Australia is fortunate to have people with a detailed understanding of music for both styles.MembershipA specialist subcommittee of the NBCA consisting of a Chairperson and four members appointed by the NBCA from persons nominated by State Governing Bodies. The Chairperson is to be a member of the NBCA. The Executive Officer of the NBCA will act as secretary to the NMCC. Two members of the subcommittee are to have a detailed understanding of music for brass bands and two members, of music for concert bands.Current Members of the NMCC are:Chairperson: Mr Robert BedwellMembers: Peter Walmsley, Barrie Gott, Peter Doherty
