1 Ohio Standards Connection Fine Arts Music Connections, Relationships and Applications Benchmark D Identify various careers in music. Indicator 7 Identify various careers for musicians (e.g., in education, in entertainment and to provide technical support). Historical, Cultural and Social Contexts Benchmark C Describe how events during various historical periods have influenced the development of music. Indicator 5 Recognize and identify contextual elements (e.g., time, location, current events, culture, social and political climate) that shape the development of music. Lesson Summary: Students discover different careers in music in this lesson. They research the historical development, training or education requirements and daily job activities for specific music careers. Students make personal contacts with people in those careers and create final presentations for the class. Estimated Duration: Five hours Commentary: There are four categories of music careers in this lesson: music education, music performance, music business and music therapy. In this lesson, students should learn that: There are many different types of careers in music; Some careers in music do not require music performance; Most careers require specialized training or higher education or both; Careers in music change over time with the development of society and technology. Pre-Assessment: Attachment A, Pre-Assessment, determines what students already know and helps you plan what new information students need about different types of careers in music and the historical development of those careers. Have students complete the pre-assessment individually or in small groups. Scoring Guidelines: Evaluate the information collected from the Attachment A, Pre-Assessment. Review Attachment A, Pre-Assessment, with students and discuss unfamiliar careers in music and the historical development of those careers. During the course of the lesson, conduct ongoing informal observation assessments of each student s progress. See Attachment D, Teacher Assessment Checklist, for an assessment outline. 1

2 Post-Assessment: Use Attachment D, Teacher Assessment Checklist, to assess students final projects. Have students individually complete Attachment E, Student Self-Assessment. Scoring Guidelines: See Attachment D, Teacher Assessment Checklist. Instructional Procedures: Day One 1. Administer the pre-assessment. 2. Following the pre-assessment activity, guide the class in a discussion of different types of careers in music and the historical development of those careers. 3. Share the four primary categories of careers in music on the chalkboard as outlined on Attachment C, Categories of Music Careers and Definitions. 4. Make a set of cards with each card defining a specific music career. Pass out cards to students and have them take turns placing each card under one of the four categories on the chalkboard. Discuss with the students those careers that would not have existed 50 years ago and explain how careers change with changes in society and technology. 5. Discuss music careers that students might find within their community, region and state. 6. Give each student a copy of Attachment B, Careers in Music Worksheet, to do as homework. Review directions with the class. Instructional Tip: Create the set of cards about specific careers and definitions during the in-class discussion of the pre-assessment, if you prefer. Day Two 7. Discuss students homework assignment. Did they discover any music career choices that were not discussed in class? Were the students surprised by how many different times and places they heard music? Were they able to figure out the kinds of careers that were involved in the performance and production of the music they heard? 8. Provide the students with Attachment C, Categories of Music Careers and Definitions. Review the information with the class. 9. Assign the final project. Review Attachment D, Teacher Assessment Checklist, with the students. Explain that each student must select a music career, contact someone in that career, interview that person, and create a final presentation to share with the class that demonstrates the four criteria listed on Attachment D, Teacher Assessment Checklist. Refer students to Attachment C, Categories of Music Careers and Definitions, to help them make their selections. Students have the option of creating their final projects in forms that are most interesting to them. Encourage the students creativity. Some options might be: 2

3 Bulletin board displays; Multimedia presentations; Skits; Interview demonstrations; Posters; Original songs; Music performances; Any other original ideas that you approve in advance. Day Three 10. Help the students locate contact people in their selected career choices. Students could use the Internet, telephone book or other resources to locate possible contact people. 11. Instruct students to write letters with interview questions to their contact people. Emphasize that they should ask questions that will help them develop their final presentations. 12. Have students research additional information on their career choices through a variety of means including print resources, online resources, interviews, etc. Instructional Tips: You may want to review the letters or interview questions for grammar, spelling and clarity to ensure that students receive useful information for creating their final projects. You may want to contact in advance some music professionals who are willing to participate in this lesson. You may want to plan a visit to the library for students to complete their research. Day Four 13. Have students prepare their individual presentations. Help them locate any additional supplies they may need to complete their projects such as poster board, markers, paint or access to technical equipment. Instructional Tip: You may need additional time to allow students to communicate with their contacts. You could spread the lesson out over time while the class works on other lessons simultaneously. Day Five 14. Have students present their projects to the entire class. Complete Attachment D, Teacher Assessment Checklist, for each student. 15. After all the projects are presented, have each student complete Attachment E, Student Self-Assessment. 3

4 Instructional Tips: You may want to recap or summarize with the class after each presentation. If you are interested in additional lessons in this area, review So You Want to Be a based on the Connections, Relationships and Applications standard, benchmark D, indicator six for grade 12. Differentiated Instructional Support: Instruction is differentiated according to learner needs, to help all learners either meet the intent of the specified indicator(s) or, if the indicator is already met, to advance beyond the specified indicator(s). Allow students to work in groups to complete the projects. Organize student groups so that students with strong interests and abilities in the subject area work with those students who struggle with similar concepts. Assign roles to various group members. Match roles to the students learning styles and individual interests. Students may choose to guide their group s progress as timekeepers or note takers. Challenge students to research more than one career in music and report on both during their presentations. Extensions: Encourage students to develop music career bulletin boards or Web sites. Have students develop personal files of resources about community music careers. Provide opportunities for students to design CD inserts, concert programs and advertising. Provide opportunities for students to report and review community and school music events. Have students create a class magazine about music careers. Have students develop a classroom music resource and research collection of newspapers, yellow pages, churches, music stores, unions, musicians, teachers, piano and organ tuners, technicians, recording studios, libraries, radio and television stations, publishers, organizations, theaters and parent resources. Have a professional, such as a piano tuner, come in to talk with the students and demonstrate his or her daily job activities. Take students on a trip to observe people who have chosen careers working the equipment necessary to run a radio station or recording studio. Use media examples (VHS, DVD) to further explain and demonstrate various careers to students. 4

5 Home Connections: Have students ask their parents and grandparents how they determined what they wanted to be when they grew up. Create a video of the students final presentations of careers in music to send home with students to share with parents. Interdisciplinary Connections: Content Area: English Language Arts Standard: Writing Applications Benchmark: Produce letters (e.g., business, letters to the editor, job applications) that address audience needs, stated purpose and context in a clear and efficient manner.
