Clarksville, TN – Several years ago, Dr. Eric Branscome, Austin Peay State University associate professor of music, kept running into students who were worried about their future. Specifically, they didn’t know what they’d do for a job once they graduated with a music degree.
“Students started coming to me more and more frequently and saying, ‘I don’t foresee myself as a music teacher, but I don’t think I’m strong enough to become a performer, so I’m at a loss,’” Branscome recalled. “That question revealed they’re completely unaware of what else is out there in terms of music careers. It’s not just limited to education and performance.”
