Deciding if music is a hobby or a career can be a daunting challenge. Have a look at our video with people who chose to go the music career route to help you decide if a music degree is the right choice for you
Music is often considered a hobby rather than a serious career option, resulting in highly talented and creative individuals giving up on their true passion and studying something that does not really inspire them.
To address this misconception, WIT has created a video featuring a selection of graduates from the BA (Hons) in Music programme which highlights the career options they have pursued.
Dr Hazel Farrell, lecturer on the music degree says "We have spoken to them on location in their places of employment to give you an insight into how they achieved their goals and succeeded in establishing fulfilling careers within the music industry."
Speaking directly to aspiring musicians, Dr Farrell says, "Our message to you is that it is okay to follow a creative path. The BA (Hons) in Music degree is the first step in opening the door to a broad range of possibilities where you can pursue your passion and also establish a successful career doing something you love".
Music is a restricted course on the CAO as applicants must also audition for the programme in the Spring. The closing date is 1 February 2020.
