Director of Music - Major P.J Curtis MBE BMus(Hons) PGDip LRSM AMusTCL RM
Major Pete Curtis joined the Royal Marines Band Service in January 1986 as a young Solo Cornet player and now, some 25 years (and 17 houses!) later, having travelled the World with numerous Royal Marines Bands, including a spell as the Director of Music of The Band of Her Majesty's Royal Marines CTCRM and Portsmouth (Royal Band), he is the Director of Music of The Band of Her Majesty's Royal Marines Collingwood.
Throughout his quarter of a century's Service, he has also maintained various links with the civilian music world, including the Salvation Army where he first learned to play, having played for or conducted numerous Brass Bands such as Woodfalls, Camborne Town, Leyland, Besses O' The Barn, Ocean Brass, Tullis Russell and Totnes Bands.
He was especially delighted when, in January 2011, he was appointed as the Director of Music of the Band of The Hampshire Constabulary.
The standards of excellence required of the Royal Marines Band are the same as those demanded of the Police Band, so we look forward to a thrilling concert of the highest quality.
