I want to join the Royal Marines Band
The Royal Marines Band Service (RMBS) offers a unique opportunity to anyone who relishes the prospect of combining his or her musical abilities with military service. Career opportunities for professional musicians are extremely limited and, hence, many talented young musicians don't even consider making a career of their hobby. The RMBS is one of the most famous and respected musical bodies in the world. Providing musical support to one of the world's finest forces. Helped by media coverage, we are probably best known for the ceremonial aspect of our job. Although important, this is a only very small part of the over all role. We are as familiar at great sporting events such as the FA Cup Final and World Cup Rugby as we are at State Occasions and Military Functions.
Your role as a musician will be physically and professionally demanding but whether you're playing Mozart or carrying out your military role, the training is unbeatable and the rewards are immense.
