Overview

The music industry is a dynamic employment market, offering paid work to a vast array of practitioners around the world. Music is an art form that has prevailed across all cultures and societies throughout history.

Much of the rapid development of the music industry has occurred very recently in the last 25 years as a result of the explosion of digital technology and re-definition of social communities and culture. This has opened up new areas of expertise for music professionals, alongside the more traditional roles of teaching, conducting, music leadership, and performing.
