ARMY BAND REQUIREMENTS
HOW TO JOIN THE ARMY BAND
The Army Music program is open to talented musicians who are qualified to enlist in the Army and can pass a prearranged audition. This program is for anyone with a passion for music.
If you are accepted into the Army Music program, you will be required to complete nine weeks of Basic Combat Training (BCT), where you will learn the fundamentals of being a Soldier.
After BCT, you'll start 10 weeks of serious musical study at the U.S. Army School of Music in Virginia Beach, Va. Once you've completed this course, you'll be assigned to a band and, you will begin your career as an Army musician.
