Music can inspire emotions, dreams, and actions. Many students find so much meaning in music that they want involvement in music to be their life’s work. Classical musicians usually train from childhood, then go on to major in music at a university or study at a conservatory. What about the rest of the musicians and music fans out there?
The Berklee College of Music has put together an extensive list of various roles within the music industry. You can learn more about the occupations of musicians and singers, as well as many related occupations, by visiting the Occupational Outlook Handbook. The University of North Carolina-Wilmington and Northern Illinois University have compiled list of links pertinent to students with interests in careers in music.
