The students will become familiar with many different careers, such as a singer, conductor, performers, teacher, musical sales associate, piano tuner, sound board operator, and Bluefish music coordinator. The students will learn about music through the use of technology, such as an IPAD, incorporating applications that contain music awareness, and a computer.
