Music Degrees

For most, music study implies the study of music performance for a professional career in the field. Studying music at undergraduate or graduate level however, is far more varied than just performance. Many programs give the opportunity to study anything from performance to composition, music theory, history and orchestration. Careers are also found far beyond performance in composition, recording, music therapy and music journalism to name a few.

If music is your passion, then there is surely a way for you to let it be a part of your future. An undergraduate or graduate degree in music with focus on your particular interests, can help you enter into a career that suits you. Even if performance is not where your passion or strength lies, there are programs that focus on other areas such as sound recording or composition.

Music Careers

A music degree primarily opens up for entry into music careers, but is more widely applicable than most may think. Music study encourages a good self confidence, great communication skills and expressive ability. The variety of music careers has also grown with technological development. Today there are plenty of music programs that focus on the areas of music recording and and digital audio.

These are newly developed areas that open up to new career possibilities beyond the classical areas of performance, composition, conducting and teaching. Some career opportunities that open up as a result of a music degree are:

  •  Solo & Ensemble Performance
  • Composing & Arranging Music Production & Recording
  • Film, Video and TV Scoring Music Technology
  • Music Therapy & Musicological Research
  • Ethnomusicology Arts Administration
  •  & Publishing
  • Librarianship & Community Music

Stuying Music

In order to be eligible for entry into a music degree, a certain proficiency in performance is often, but not always, necessary. Unless the degree is one solely specializing in for example computer music technology or music recording, an audition or interview in addition to fulfilling other academic requirements will often be required. Where you choose to study depends very much on what direction you wish for your studies to take.

Some programs place larger focus on performance than others, and some offer the opportunity to specialize in for example music theory or or conducting, if this is where your passion lies. If your wish is to enter into a teaching or therapist career, you will often require further education after your music degree. Some schools offer the possibility of combining your music studies with such a specialization or doing a double major.

Choosing a school is therefore very individual to what your goals and dreams are. Look for schools that offer the course combination that you are looking for. As with most studies however, studying abroad will most often require you to be proficient in the native of the country where you will be going to school.
