How to join us

A career or job in the Corps of Army Music can offer full time employment as a musician within the British Army. A pensionable career potentially to the age of 55. Fantastic travel opportunities with the chance to perform at great venues and events around the world.

What music qualifications do you need?

The Corps of Army Music is interested in your performance and potential rather than just music qualifications. 

Not all musicians have recognised musical qualifications, so with or without them you may gain entry in to the Corps by audition alone. If you can demonstrate you have the potential we are looking for, we can help develop it to the full.

We will audition you where you will be expected to perform 2 contrasting pieces on your primary instrument/voice and if applicable, on your secondary instrument.

During the audition process your sight reading skills will be tested and your aural perception assessed.

You will also be required to sit a general musicianship paper.

Age exception - over 33 contact us direct

You can join the Corps of Army Music as a regular soldier up to the age of 36 years and 11 months old.

The current online application form only accepts soldier applications if you are under 33.

If you want to join and are over 33 please call the CAMUS recruiting team on 020 8744 8642 and they will talk you through the process for making your application.
