Playing music in't Navy

I think I already know the answer to this (no), but I'm wondering if it's possible to continue to play drums / guitars if I am accepted.. been playing in bands and recording / producing for a while and would like to keep doing these things (on my own, with other musicians, whatever)..

I am fully willing to put it all to bed in order to join up but would be a treat to be able to carry on with the musical ventures if possible.

Applying as an AET / ET (ME) if that has any bearing on the question, and I don't have any musical qualifications I'm self-taught.

Sure this has been done before, but many ships have ship's bands who practice together in the workshop/hangar and get to play gigs to their adoring fans at flight deck barbecues etc.

Better answer. Cheers!
 
Most ships/units/air stations/training establishments have some sort of band and if you are good enough then yes there's nothing to stop you. Biggest problem on-board is space and time to practice. But I've seen some good and some very bad bands whilst in the RN.

Yeah my bezzy oppo still plays in his band and does other stuff when he has the time off and I'm involved in a a few musical projects myself. As long as it doesn't interfere with your job onboard there's no stopping you.
