MSMUS 505 — Career Development Seminar

2 credits
Fall, Spring
Bärli Nugent

This highly collaborative seminar comprises three primary areas of focus: the finding and refinement of one’s own artistic voice; the polished production of a wide array of career materials; and the hands-on acquisition of tools and experiences that open pathways to new possibilities. Also woven throughout is increasing the awareness of how to: recognize opportunity; build your team; understand behind-the-scenes thinking; find and commission a composer; walk through a job search; develop an authentic public speaking persona; harness music’s power to effect change; enhance the ability to enter any situation professionally; and take continuous and organic action towards your career right now. Revision and completion of the significant number of weekly assignments is supported by five individual meetings with the teacher during the course of the semester.
