Career Development

Career Development introduces skills, knowledge and mindsets that help musical artists develop their own career path in the current music marketplace. Through case studies of diverse musicians and their unique careers, students gain an understanding of artistic, institutional, and social issues that professional musicians consider as they navigate the field. Using these case studies as models, students refine their understanding of their own personal strengths, aspirations, and artistic mission, and develop a portfolio of materials that communicate their story/brand to audiences using various digital media. Students also learn about practical elements of self-managing a music career, such as contracts, household budgeting, and tax preparation for musicians.
