There are more than 600 musicians in the Navy but the Navy only hires about 25 musicians each year, most with bachelor's or master's degrees in music. The 11 active duty Navy bands perform military ceremonies and public concerts, support the Navy's public outreach and recruiting efforts. Navy Musicians participate in about 6,000 performances for live audiences totaling more than 15 million people, not including the 300 million people reached via broadcast. Auditions to become a Navy musician are by appointment only.
