Many career opportunities are available to graduates in the field of music. Opportunities for teaching music include instruction at the elementary, secondary and university levels. In addition, many musicians teach independently, establishing their own music studios and working with students of all ages.
Although opportunities in the area of full-time professional performance are limited, there are many musicians who perform on a part-time basis. Students who seek performance careers should consider continued studies in a graduate school of music. Beyond the fields of teaching and performing, career opportunities exist in many related areas such as music publishing, radio and television, arts management, recording engineering, music copying and various aspects of the music business.
Accomplished musicians are vital to and needed in all areas of the music profession.
