The Salvation Army’s music ministries teach people of all ages how to sing and play instruments to the glory of God and for the blessing of others. Whether it’s playing in a Salvation Army band, singing in a choir or praise band in Sunday worship, or playing instruments at a Christmas kettle, Salvation Army music ministries provide participants with a lifetime of fulfillment through musical excellence with spiritual purpose.

Divisional Music and Arts (DMA) is an opportunity for soldiers of all ages and abilities to come together and further develop their talents to use in the various corps settings that present themselves as ministry opportunities throughout the year. We welcome any person who is involved in the corps, officer & soldier alike, who may have a skill that can contribute to one of the ensembles listed.

The Salvation Army tradition of brass bands goes back more than 125 years. In Washington, DC, and the surrounding areas the National Capital Band has been a part of this tradition since its formation in 1925.

Organizationally, the band is attached to the headquarters of the National Capital and Virginia Division, based in Washington, DC. The band is administered through the divisional music department, which is under the supervision of Bandmaster David Delaney.
