Careers in Music.
Stearns, Betty, Ed.; Degan, Clara, Ed.
This booklet identifies career opportunities in music in performing arts, education, business, recording, and allied fields. It is intended for use by high school and college students, teachers, and anyone with an interest in working in the field of music. It explores performing careers but also identifies many other music-related jobs that require an understanding of music but not necessarily professional-level performing skills or any performing ability at all. Each chapter describes types of jobs, ways to get started, opportunities for advancement, required skills and training, how and where to look for a job, and pros and cons of various careers. The chapter on performing arts reviews career options in popular music, symphony orchestras, the armed forces, and composing and arranging. The chapter on education discusses teaching and administrative positions in public schools, band directing in colleges and public schools, and private teaching. In the area of business, careers exist in retailing, manufacturing, wholesaling, music publishing, and piano tuning. The recording industry offers various positions in both record production and the business side of recording. The final chapter reviews careers in allied fields such as church music, music therapy, music criticism, communications, and music libraries. (AV)
