Have you ever met someone who thinks in A minor and speaks in G sharp? They can break down every part of a song while telling you who wrote it, where it was recorded and how they did it? They often operate on the “music is life” mantra. Is that person you? If so, you should consider earning a degree in Music and turning your love of music into a music career.
Those with a degree in Music can explore many different career options. If music is your true passion and you want to share its importance to the masses, consider teaching, ensemble or solo performance, music engineering, music therapy, sound technician, a career in radio or broadcasting, or theater stage manager.
