Professional Music Qualification Will Help You Get Plum Jobs

Written by Cassidy Klint

The following post is a guest post written by Cassidy Klint

The American music industry grew by 18 percent during the first 6 months of 2019, and musicians or aspiring music producers who want to be a part of this booming industry should give some thought to planning out their music industry careers, including making the choice to get professional music qualifications. While there isn’t just one pathway to a fulfilling career in this industry, gaining credentials that get respect in the music industry will always open doors.

You’ll Stand Out From the Competition

Music is a passion, but it’s also a business, and musicians and producers fight for jobs, just like people in other niches do. In the music industry, having professional music qualifications will give you credibility. It will boost your resume, so you can impress people who want to hire musicians or other music industry types. Without these qualifications, you may find that other musicians or producers grab the plum jobs that you want. In this industry, people respect others who take the time to learn and receive pro qualifications. They are a sign that a musician or producer takes the music industry seriously. Qualifications will help you to get ahead in your music career, and help you to develop skills that you may use for a lifetime.

How to gain the right credentials

Next, you will need to learn, but you’ll need to choose training from institutions or individuals that do offer pro qualifications to their students. For example, a piano teacher might be affiliated with the Royal Conservatory of Music and help students to learn skills that allow them to pass the Royal Conservatory of Music’s rigorous examinations. These days, there are different ways to learn, including online courses, which give students the opportunity to learn remotely. These courses may be accelerated, which means that students have to learn a lot of things over a shorter time frame. Learning online isn’t the only possibility, though.

In general, learning in a real-life, one-on-one setting from a qualified music teacher or music production expert will be the best way to access caring support that helps you to develop your talents and skills. The personal touch of face-to-face interaction is always beneficial, as you may be guided in a personal way while you are taught. It’s quite possible to get formal qualifications through in-person lessons, but if you choose an online route, you can also consider supplementing your learning with additional classes or tutoring.

You’ll gain an edge when you apply for jobs online

To get your foot in the door for music jobs, you may need to apply online. Some employers now screen resumes for certain keywords and qualifications. For example, if they want musicians or producers with certain credentials, those credentials may be the keywords that they’re looking for. If these keywords aren’t on your resume, you may never get your foot in the door. Sometimes, to get auditions or producing jobs, you need to apply digitally, as it’s the modern way of looking for work. Credentials will help you to get to the next level.

A professional qualification can be a useful way to get ahead in the music industry, and it’s possible to map out a strategy that earns you great credentials. When you get these credentials, you’ll be able to achieve your own potential.
