What is the employment outlook?
Becoming a professional musician is extremely competitive. Only the most talented and "lucky" achieve financial success as professionals. The number of people with the desire to perform will exceed the number of openings.
Many musicians are employed in religious institutions; in fact, the majority of musicians are employed in churches and temples.
While the employment outlook may seem discouraging, many musicians feel that the satisfaction of doing something they love compensates for the difficulty of the profession.
