Pupils from five high schools practised alongside the professional brass players at St Thomas Aquinas Secondary in Glasgow today before performing tonight.
Pupils could take part in workshops with musicians from the military's dance band, folk group and big band
Monica Morrison, a music teacher at St Thomas Aquinas, is also a musician in the 6 Scots Lowland Territorial Army Band.
She said: "When I was at high school I was privileged to take part in a workshop with the Navy and it benefited me greatly. As a pupil it was an experience that stayed with me."
Bradley Starkey, 14, plays the tenor sax and hopes to enlist as a musician with the Army.
The Springburn Academy pupil said: "It's been hard but its been good.
"When you get bits wrong with the music or are struggling, they help you out."
The band is the only full-time military band in Scotland. It recently performed at the Paralympic Games and has been to Afghanistan twice in the last year, providing troop morale support over the festive season and again during the Burns festivities in January.
Warrant Officer Class One, Bandmaster Justin Teggarty said: "The band is here today to promote Army music.
"One of our jobs is recruiting, and we've got to cover the whole of Scotland."
Money raised at the concert will go towards the school fund.
