For all those most enthusiastic about their music, work in music education is a natural fit. Far from being an incident of 'those who can't do, show', those who take music knowledge jobs are gifted not only as artists but as teachers who wish to move their love of music to still another generation, to ensure that there's always music in-the world.

Once upon a time, a qualification in music education was viewed as a 'fallback option'- the-job that would always be there if a performing or creation job did not work-out. That point is long gone now as states have cut funding for enrichment education across the country. Whilst the career outlook for music teachers remains good, the Occupational Outlook Handbook states that jobs for musicians and teachers can increase at about average or a little faster than average rates through 2014 - college departments, individual companies and schools have the luxury of having the ability to be choosy about whom they employ to fill music training jobs.

One of the most readily useful approaches to hear about openings and music education jobs would be to establish a system of contact within the music education community. While standard network is good, you will find approaches to network more effectively to concentrate your focus o-n finding and improving your likelihood of being employed for music education jobs.

Network locally.

Lucky you, you already have three different resources of local networking that can help you narrow your job search focus. Being an instructor, get involved with local organizations for teachers and get your name out there. Match them, when you yourself have made connections while practice-teaching and interning, and request their advice and assistance in your career path. By all means, let them and others know that you're looking for a job in music education. Other teachers tend to be the first to understand that among their own is making.

School department connections are invaluable.

In most cities, vacancies must be posted by the school department internally before advertising them to-the general public. Those vacancies in many cases are published on the bulletin board in each school within the district. Let teacher friends and associates know that you are looking and question them to watch out for you. Knowing that an opening is posted internally may give you a leg up on the competition and sign you to send your resume and cover letter for music education jobs before they're advertised.

Network on line.

Join national and local music teachers associations on line, particularly the ones that hold regular activities, symposiums and have a discussion board. Many post over a few, and job openings for members permit members to post job leads and requests for job leads on their boards. Some organizations that you could consider joining include:

Engineering Institute for Music Educators (http://www.ti-me.org/)

Music Teachers National Association (http://www.mtna.org)

Teachers.net Chat boards (http://teachers.net/mentors/music/)

The National Association for Music Education (http://www.menc.org/)

Keep in mind that in network, you get out what you put in. Don't just join friends and start soliciting for music education jobs. Seek out what you could possibly offer - the more you become involved the more obvious you'll become and the more ready others will soon be to suggest jobs to you..
