The 2013 A Cappella Job Outlook
Guest Blogger: Deke Sharon is the co-author (with Dylan Bell) of A Cappella Arranging. The following is an excerpt from his blog on Casa.org. Please pay them a visit for more a cappella news and discussions from Deke.
From time to time, I’ll get an email along the lines of “Help! I graduate soon (or am going to college soon), and I want more than anything to make a career of a cappella! How can I do it?”
For those fine folks who are signing on the dotted line before reading the fine print, here’s an overview of the career options in a cappella in 2013:
1. Music Educator
2. Recording and Editing
4. Audio Engineer
5. Jack of All Trades
6. Design Your Own Career
To read Deke’s full description of each of these job possibilities, visit this blog post on Casa.org!
The tone of the book is instructive and informative, yet conversational: it is intended to stand alongside any academic publication while remaining interesting and fun. A Cappella Arranging is a good textbook – and a “good read” – for every vocal arranger, whether amateur or professional; every vocal music classroom, and any professional recording studio.
