  The picture tells the story of the recruitment success

The trio of professional brass bands within the British Army — The Band of the Royal Corps of Signals, The Band of the King's Division and The Band of the Prince of Wales's Division have been showcasing the success of their recruitment initiatives.

Picture post

The picture above shows some of the professional Army musicians who now enjoy careers as full time Corps of Army musicians as well as being able to play on a regular basis with civilian bands at all levels.

A spokesperson told 4BR: "Musicians from the three brass bands put on their civilian band uniforms to show that music isn't just a job for us — it's also our passion. We really do love what we do and it continues to be a hobby outside of work for many of us as it fits in so well around our working lives.

Our players regularly compete with local bands and we have currently have musicians in over 20 local brass bands in the Midland, the North and in Wales — including the likes of Cory, Grimethorpe, Flowers, Leyland, Desford, Oldham Band (Lees), Llywdcoed, Ebbw Valley Brass, Poulton Le Fylde, Jackfield, Brunel Brass, Dodworth Colliery, Blackpool Brass and J36 Brass."

Golden Hello

New applicants can also be awarded a 'Golden Hello' of up to £10,000, whilst the new Junior Entry Apprenticeship for young musicians between the ages of 16-18 has already been seen as a great success.

The Band of the Royal Corps of Signals will hold an Open Day on the 21st March at RAF Cosford near Wolverhampton where potential recruits can enjoy a day of full band rehearsals, marching band and more t find out more about what a career as a musician in the Corps of Army Music can offer.
