Musicians, singers, and related workers
Description: Musicians and singers play instruments and perform vocal music. They may perform alone or in groups, before live audiences or in recording studios. Composers write original songs for bands, orchestras, or singers. Conductors lead musical groups such as orchestras, dance bands, and ensembles. Most musicians work nights and weekends and must travel to perform. Because it's so hard to support themselves with music, many take other jobs as well. Many musicians work in cities with recording studios, such as New York, Los Angeles, and Nashville.
