Marching bands

Download the full transcript for this video

Without a doubt, the marching band is the most recognisable face of military music. This very image of military music is matched by the ability of the bands within the Corps of Army Music to perform on the march.

Millions of people will have seen either in person or on TV such events as:

Trooping The Colour
Buckingham Palace Guard Mounts
Edinburgh Royal Military Tattoo

Troops will tell you that no parade is complete without the support of a military band and the professional bands of the Corps of Army Music are the very best.

The bands support events such as:

  • Beating Retreats
  • Medal parades
  • Freedom and homecoming parades
  • Pass out parades for training
  • Public Duties in London
  • Tattoos around the world
  • Carnivals
  • Remembrance parades
  • Sports events
