Royal Military School of Music

The Royal Military School of Music (RMSM) occupies Kneller Hall - recognized as the home of Army music since its foundation in 1857 - near Twickenham, just 9 miles from central London.

Courses run at the school

Phase 2 training

The Phase 2 musicians course (Rendle VC Troop) provides Phase 2 training for all soldiers joining the Corps of Army Music and is undertaken after completion of Phase 1 military training.

The length of this training varies according to the standard of musicianship on entry, running from 11 to 44 working weeks. It is designed to allow musicians to fulfill their potential early with a view to passing mandatory tests for assignment to a band as soon as possible.

Phase 3 courses

Career development courses for trained musicians within the bands to assist in progressing their careers. This included Command Leadership and Management Courses (CLM) and the new Musicial Direction (MD) courses.

Tuition is delivered by some of Britain's leading instrumental and academic professors, many of whom play in leading symphony orchestras or teach in the London music colleges. The RMSM provides, therefore, strong contemporary links with the world of civilian professional music.

Military training and supervision is provided by the best instructors and staff from within the Corps of Army Music and the wider Army.
