Auditions

We always have need for qualified musicians! U.S. Navy musicians have the adventure perform many genres of music, both at home and abroad! We travel frequently, perform in a wide range of venues, and serve as musical ambassadors for the United States and the U.S. Navy.

Auditions are conducted by Navy bandmasters and their designated representatives at any official Navy Band or the Naval School of Music. For more information on specific audition requirements for your instrument, refer to the Fleet Band Activities Job Opportunities page. To schedule your audition, contact your local Navy Recruiter or the Fleet Band Activities Audition Supervisor at 1-866-827-5672, or contact the Audition Supervisor.
