Music as Calling & Career

Spring 2020

Taught By: Evan Rapport

Section: A

CRN: 7061

Credits: 2

For most of us committed to the lifelong pursuit of musical knowledge and ability, music is a calling, something that we devote ourselves to even though such a life may seem quixotic. Yet the perception of a career in music as impractically idealistic often stems from a lack of awareness regarding the many possible options for those who have studied music as a part of the liberal arts. This course considers the special ways of thinking, listening, and being in the world that the study of music can help enable, and the variety of professional possibilities available to those who “think musically.” Students are encouraged to use this opportunity to develop a résumé, demo, portfolio piece, grant proposal, or graduate school application. This upper-level course is restricted to sophomores, juniors, and seniors.
