Overview

Put in the practice time, and you will be prepared in technique, expression, repertoire studies and even pedagogy as you go on into your chosen career.

In the Music Performance - Orchestral Instruments program of Stetson University you will perform frequently in concerts and student recitals in historic Elizabeth Hall. The annual Concerto Competition offers opportunities for solo performances with the Stetson Orchestra. You may audition for three large instrumental ensembles, chamber ensembles and for other performing opportunities, and you may get experience the pit of a fully staged musical or opera. The symphonic band has a history of performing at national concert events, the jazz ensemble performs throughout the state and nationally, and chamber ensembles have participated in national competitions, including MTNA, Fishoff and Colemann competitions.

Career Outlook

The demand for talent is always high, and students graduating with a Bachelor of Music degree, whether in composition, performance or theory, will discover career paths aligned to their specific talents and capabilities. Some students go on to more in-depth study in graduate programs, and some find their calling by bringing music to their communities and schools. 

The Career Insight tool is built on a national database of job openings, postings and requirements, but for many students in Stetson's School of Music, career connections are made during their course of study and through their practice and performance, and with the guidance of their faculty and colleagues. Approximately one-third of positions related to performing arts and teaching ask for a Bachelor's degree, and nearly half of all openings are for candidates with one to two years of experience — a good indication there is demand for music graduates.
