Career Possibilities:

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.

Some music graduates seek to become performers. Although opportunities in the area of full-time professional performance are limited, many musicians perform on a part-time basis. Students who seek performance careers in music should consider continued studies in a graduate school of music. Students with undergraduate degrees in music who aspire to be theorists, composers, musicologists, historians, or therapists should likewise expect to engage graduate study. There also exist career opportunities in many related areas such as music publishing, mass media, arts management, recording engineering, arranging, sales, manufacturing, church music and various aspects of the music business. Accomplished musicians are vital to and needed in all areas of the music profession.
