One of the UK's largest industries, music offers a wide range of career options including performance, production, management, publishing, composition, retail and much more.
As a musician or performer you could be doing anything from recording sessions, west end shows, cruise-ship work or touring the world. If you choose to be a technology specialist, you could be helping with sound-engineering at live performances, writing and producing tracks from a laptop or recording artists in a studio. Composers often work from home, increasingly with technology. You could also teach in an institution or privately.
Creativity, musical knowledge, determination, communication, confidence, patience and self-motivation.
