Instrumental musicians work long hours. Practices and rehearsals usually are held during the day; performances often are evenings and weekends. It is not uncommon for musicians to travel on tour or wherever they can find work (clubs, taverns and concerts halls). They may be required to lift and carry instruments and accessories weighing up to 10 kilograms. Electronic audio and related equipment may weigh considerably more.
Your classes will introduce you to music theory, instrument or vocal training, music history, and various other courses that will broaden your horizons and expand your musical taste and knowledge. You will be properly prepared to perform in any kind of environment or situation.
