Job Information

Direct and conduct instrumental or vocal performances by musical groups, such as orchestras or choirs.


  • Part-time schedules—typically at night and on weekends—intermittent unemployment, and rejection when auditioning for work are common; many musicians and singers supplement their income with earnings from other sources.
  • Aspiring musicians and singers begin studying an instrument or training their voice at an early age.
  • Competition for jobs, especially full-time jobs, is keen; talented individuals who can play several instruments and perform a wide range of musical styles should enjoy the best job prospects.
