Civvy Drum Major sought for West Yorkshire Fire Service Band

Band of the West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service

Are you ex forces, TA or have cadet marching experience? If so then we are looking for you!

The WYFRS Band is actively seeking an experienced Drum Major to lead the band on parade and is also confident in drill instruction.
We are a concert band based at Fire Service HQ in Birkenshaw near Bradford and rehearse on Mondays from 19:30 until 22:00hrs.
As a band, we perform a wide variety of jobs which include Medal Presentations, Beating Retreats and Marching Displays, Massed Band marching engagements and various private functions.
Any interested party must be willing to attend all possible engagements and rehearsals and to become involved with the concert band as well as the marching band set up. Instruction of new and existing members is vital to this role as is the preparation of marching displays working alongside the Musical Director and in a conjunction with the bands Management Team.
Knowledge of military music/marches is of course advantageous.

This is the creation of a new role within the band (although we do have a level of knowledge and ability already) and we are keen to appoint someone who can show knowledge, patience, appreciation of civilian musicians and who can display the qualities of a team member.

In return, we can offer a friendly band with well attended rehearsals and jobs including a great social life.We also offer the opportunity to travel to Ypres this year and possibly Spain and or Canada next year.

We are keen to fill this position relatively quickly and auditions will be held fairly soon in order that we can begin our marching rehearsals.

Please reply to with a brief history of your experience and why this position interests you.
