The career exploration program for grades 9 through 10, as part of a comprehensive K through 10 career development program, attempts to develop an awareness of and appreciation for work, extend knowledge of the variety of career opportunities, and provide experiences in career areas of individual interest. The document, a collection of materials consisting of student learning experience packets and a resource list, is designed to introduce the students to careers in music. The definition of the career area, course objectives, course strategy, procedure, evaluation, and suggested time table are included in the introduction. The learning activities are organized according to objectives, procedures, and resources and cover the following career areas: (1) the performing role (concert singer, instrumentalist, popular singer, composer, arranger, teacher, conductor, and therapist), and (2) the supporting role (instrument manufacturer, salesman, instrument repair, piano tuner, music critic, librarian, and publisher). Other related careers and self evaluation of career maturity are also touched upon. Learning activities include role playing, self-analysis quiz, worksheets, field trips, discussion, demonstration, films, interviews, composition, and group work. The appendix contains procedures and suggestions for both field trips and exploration trips, forms for exploration trips, a music career interest survey form, a list of job titles, and a multimedia resource list.
