What kind of salary can graduates expect?

Salaries for musicians depend upon the area of specialization. Qualified music teachers earn salaries comparable to other teachers in the workplace. Band and Choral directors often receive additional salary stipends for their work with their performing groups.  Successful performers, sound engineers, music therapists and other technicians name their fees. Salary levels rise with the level of achievement within the field.

What scholarship opportunities are available?

Students involved in music studies at Kilgore College may apply for scholarships that can cover partial to full tuition expenses. These music scholarships are available to both music majors and non-majors for participating in ensembles (such as band and choir), and may enable the student to pay in-district tuition. Those interested in applying for music scholarships should contact the music department faculty approximately three months prior to the semester's start to receive priority consideration.
