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 smaller, specified music program, 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
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.
