Music Performance

Where to get experience

Competition is tough in the music industry, but a love for your style of music combined with the determination to succeed should improve your chances.

Whatever your genre of music, you'll need to get practical experience.

Get involved with relevant orchestras, choirs, music societies, bands and solo musicians at university and in your local area. Although some jobs and auditions are advertised in the music and entertainment press, one of the most common ways to learn of vacancies is via word of mouth and networking.

Introduce yourself as much as possible, making the most of your professional contacts and keep up with social media to promote yourself.
