CAREERS IN THE AIR FORCE BAND PROGRAM

Upon entry to the United States Air Force, all Air Force musicians are required to complete Basic Military Training located at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland in San Antonio, Texas. Basic training lasts approximately eight weeks. During this period you will be assigned to the Drum and Bugle Corps.
The eight-week session is the only formal military training period musicians are required to complete. Unlike other services, the Air Force doesn't require members to attend a technical training school or military music school. After graduation from Basic Military Training, individuals report directly to their assigned band.

For more information regarding the audition process please visit our QUESTIONS page or phone 210-671-3934.
