Potential Careers

Being a music minor at Georgetown College gave me experiences that were helpful no matter what profession I decided on. Whether it was improving my presentation skills or learning how to effectively communicate through song, the music faculty at Georgetown College showed me how transferrable my experience in music could really be.

 - Zachary White, 2015

The music minor I received at Georgetown college has been a great asset to me in my life post graduation. I am a 5th grade teacher in Franklin county and the knowledge I have of music allows me to connect with coworkers in a unique way. I am also able to integrate music for my students who are musical learners which is a great tool to have in my toolbox. I am also able to help with extracurricular activities such as the school play and chorus which allows me to connect with students on another level!

My music minor gave me the opportunity to hone my skills as a musician while still focusing on my major and my career path in college. The experiences I had while working toward my music minor have helped me be more successful as I work with the music ministry at my church and include music instruction in my classroom.
