Careers in Music

“What are my career options in music?”

Many students (and often their parents) ask this question when they consider studying in music in college—and even when they are already in a college music degree program. Teaching and performing are the first things that come to mind, but there are many other exciting options for the professional musician. Studying music at Clayton State University can prepare you for a bright future in the music profession.

The National Association for Music Education and the Berklee College of Music have both compiled useful information on a wide range of career options in music. Links to their sites (provided with their permission) are below:
