Music plays an important and popular role in the life of cadets and playing as part of your squadron band can be highly rewarding.

Whether you’re an experienced player, or just starting to learn a musical instrument, getting involved in music is a great way of socialising and of promoting the ACO wherever you play to the public. If you show real talent you could take your playing to the next level in regional bands or even the NationalConcert Band – where our best players perform at public events often at some very prestigious locations, including Buckingham Palace!

As well as the social element of playing a musical instrument within the Air Cadet Organisation, you can also do a BTEC in Music and turn your fun and talent into a formal qualification.
