Creative Careers: Music Jobs Roundup

Whether you’re a musician yourself or someone with a love of song and keen administrative skills, you can find a job in the music field that suits your abilities. 

Although many people wish they had a musical ear or that they were a child musical prodigy, most of us don’t have the talents necessary to become a professional musician. That doesn’t mean we can’t work in a musical environment or find a satisfying job that allows us to contribute to the creation of music in other ways, however. There are plenty of positions available at musical organizations that require all kinds of skills and experience, such as sound engineering, production, teaching, marketing, and operations, just to name a few. If you’re someone who wants to apply your skills to fostering musical growth without playing an instrument, take a look at these listings (and find more on NYFA Classifieds).
