I'm bumping this up.

There are TWO vacancies for Tuba. The Navy fleet program is not a base fleet band. These people are usually graduates with a music ed or performance degree and love to play. You receive the Post 9-11 GI bill (HUGE benefit); full medical; solid salary; and room to grow. One of the things I love most about what *I* do are the collateral duties--you can receive training and education that is marketable for when you retire.

Guys, this is a great opportunity. Please take advantage of it--All you have to do is be deemed acceptable and your name remains on the "acceptable for the navy school of music" for 6 months. Please consider this. You will not regret this decision.
