Careers in Music
Turn Your Passion Into a Profession
If you’re passionate about music, there are lots of ways to turn it into a career. You can perform in bands, orchestras, operas or musical theater. You can compose for other artists — or for TV, movies or ads. You can teach music to K–12 or college students. Or you can give private lessons. And there are even more jobs to be had in fields like journalism, broadcasting and event planning. A bachelor’s or master’s degree can give you the training needed for careers like teaching or music therapy. But if that’s not for you, you can also go far on talent and hard work.
