RAF Musicians provide musical support for the RAF, ranging from Military and State events to concerts, television and radio broadcasts and studio recordings.
You will regularly take part in radio and television broadcasts as well as studio recordings for record labels. The military engagements include changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, Royal Jubilees, Royal Weddings and Funerals, Remembrance Sunday at the Cenotaph in London and graduation parades for new RAF Recruits at RAF Halton.
On completion of your training, you will be posted to one of the 3 Regular Bands based either at Royal Air Force Northolt in London, or RAF College Cranwell in Lincolnshire. All our musicians – whether woodwind, brass, percussion or string players – are required to perform on parade and are able to perform a variety of playing styles. You will also have an operational role, providing support to Medical Operations.
