Opportunities for musicians


Successful applicants could qualify for the 'Golden Hello', a taxable reward of up to £10,000. Musicians in the Army do not undertake direct military duties but do play a huge role in raising morale amongst troops on deployment. In addition, CAMUS’ musicians perform to local communities overseas to build a rapport and help create positive relationships.

For musicians, CAMUS offers an opportunity to develop a stable career, with professional tuition, a fully-funded BMus (Hons) degree and full or partial funding towards music diplomas available. What's more, it's a chance to travel the world and get paid to play music on some of the world's greatest stages.

Membership of CAMUS also comes with Army career benefits, such as the opportunity to play a variety of sports and take part in adventurous training.
