The US Navy has openings for qualified musicians!
Being a Navy Musician is a very exciting career! You get to combine the adventure
of being a member of "America's Navy" with the job of performing many types of
music, both at home and abroad! Navy Musicians travel frequently, perform in a wide range of venues, and serve as musical ambassadors for the US Navy.
In addition to being musically qualified, Navy Musicians are held to the
strictest standards of personal appearance and fitness. If you are interested in scheduling an audition to be a part of the US Navy Music Program, please contact your local recruiter.
It is highly recommended for you to reference the Navy Music Program's FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) Page, and you may also contact the Navy Band Great Lakes Audition Supervisor for more
Note: It is very difficult to transfer to the MU rating after entry into the Navy. If you are interested in becoming a Navy Musician, complete an audition prior to signing a Delayed Entry Program (DEP) or enlistment contract.
The Navy Music Program does not have doubling requirements on any instrument!
