What Can You Do With A Major In Music? 

A major in music requires a thorough knowledge of music, the ability to interpret music, and study with an accomplished musician, and training at a university in order to acquire the skills necessary for success. Most people who enter music begin studying an instrument or voice at an early age. Careers in music can be grouped into five categories, including performers/conductors, composers/arrangers, teachers, historians and therapists. High quality performance in this field requires constant study, practice and self-discipline.
