Music training in Ethiopia

The Corps of Army Music recently supplied a Short Term Training Team (STTT) to Ethiopia to support the Ethiopian National Defence Force Band (ENDFB) and the Somaliland Police Band.

What we did for music in Ethiopia

This was a return visit for the Corps of Music which is helping to develop the musical capabilities of the military musicians in Ethiopia.

Training and rehearsals included development of the concert band and marching band but also instruction and guidance on practice techniques for individuals and within each section of the bands.

The Short term Training Team had an effective and enjoyable time in Ethiopia and the Corps of Army Music looks forward to future trips and developing the relationship with the musicians in Ethiopia in the years to come.
