If handled properly a career change for a teacher may not be a difficult task. Hello, I’m 18 and I looovvvee music and plan on going to college for music and becoming a music agent for a company. They also must learn the skills and mindset of entrepreneurship, how to be flexible, and how to be diverse in what they can do. They can’t expect jobs to come to them.
I’m considering making music my major, but have my family’s voices in the back of my mind saying that is not a good field to get into. When you look at the other kings of Israel beginning with Saul, we do not see any of them stepping into that Music Director role as David did.
And to confuse you even further, you can find schools like Benjamin T. Rome School of Music at Catholic University, where you can major in composition and also take the Music Teacher Certification Program. But, when it came to finding jobs after graduation, technical school graduates had one very important advantage-legitimate experience handling the latest equipment used in the music industry.
Job of the music producer is cut out in listening to and selecting the right track. Music industry jobs working conditions vary from state of the art concert halls and recording studios to grungy basements and run-down clubs. I have yet to start any Ed classes and have just completed all of my theory and history prerequisites, but have recently realized music education is not what I am passionate about and feel I want to spend my career doing.
Sweden astoundingly has huge number of jobs specially in the field of electronics/electrical and telecommunication engineering. You don’t mention whether the schools you attended have offered any career development support but if you haven’t sought that from them, we suggest you do. Music schools are getting better at this all the time.
