The chapter explains how an aristocratic officer class, as the commanding officers of militia regiments, established a network of musical units throughout Britain and Ireland. It focuses on the role of military bands in social and musical life outside London, including the influence of military music on domestic piano music. It deals with the social and martial functions in which these musicians were engaged, and in so doing, touches on instrumentation, repertoire, recruitment and training.
