Music Career Opportunities
Students in the Department of Music are equipped to begin careers in a host of areas, depending on what they want to do—whether that be perform, teach, manage, or organize music events. Because of UIndy’s small student-faculty ratio, students are able to direct their education towards the career they want to pursue.
Students have gone on to find work:
- In symphonies and orchestras across the country
- Playing or singing for local music groups
- Teaching in high schools and colleges
- Working on the jazz circuit, playing multiple times a week
- Pursuing graduate studies
This previous list focuses, primarily, on playing and/or singing, but with concentrations like Music Business and Music Technology & Recording, students have unending opportunities to work in environments where they can find a career without acting as a performer:
- They work in studios recording and mastering albums
- They organize and promote music events in their community
- They work at local churches to organize and complete music projects
- They compose and publish pieces of music that go on to be performed by others
What you choose to do with your music degree is up to you; UIndy has the capability to offer you close, specified attention—from faculty to ensembles—to foster the goals you have as a musician.
