Exploring Music Careers. A Student Guidebook.
Cornell, Richard; And Others
One of six student guidebooks in a series of 11 arts and humanities career exploration guides for grade 7-12 teachers, counselors, and students, this student book on exploration of writing careers presents information on specific occupations in five different career areas: Performing musicians, technology in music, arts management, the music business, and music education. An introductory section lists nearly 100 job titles under the five career areas. A chapter devoted to each career area includes general discussion of the field and what people in that field do, various specializations within job categories, description of personality characteristics and interests that are appropriate, education or experience required, where and how jobs are found and the job outlook, and suggestions a person in the field would make to students. The chapters and their subheadings are as follows: (1) Performing Musicians (How do you Become a Performer? What is it like to be a performer?), (2) Technology in Music (Building Musical Instruments and the Impact of New Technologies on Music), (3) Arts Management (Who Are Arts Managers and What Do They Do? What Kind of Person Is an Arts Manager? Money, and The Future), (4) The Music Business (The Music Industry, From Composer to the Public, How a Song Gets to You and Who Gets It There, and Music Business Terminology), and (5) Music Education (Music Teachers, Music Librarians, Musicology and Ethnomusicology, and Music Therapy).
