Through music, The Royal Corps of Army Music influences, sustains, and develops the moral component of fighting power,
supporting State Ceremonial and Public Duties, and delivering influence in order to further Army, Defence and National interests.
British Army Bands are a unifying force, reflecting the mood of the nation, and playing a central part in national events and
supporting official engagements undertaken by The Royal Household.
The Royal Corps of Army Music also contributes to the strengthening of international relationships,
exercising soft power through performances with allies, exchange visits, and Short-Term Training Teams.
In 1999 The Royal Corps of Army Music Trust was established for the serving and retired members of The Royal Corps of Army Music.
The Trust maintains the Corps’ identity and heritage, providing fraternity, welfare and benevolent support to serving musicians and veterans.
