Music teachers instruct students in the musical arts. They are mostly employed by secondary schools, which generally require them to hold a bachelor’s and master’s degree in a related field as well as to demonstrate musical proficiency. Job growth is projected to remain steady as the population continues to grow and current music teachers retire. In school districts serving a high proportion of English Second Language (ESL) families, fluency in languages such as Spanish and Mandarin is highly desirable.
