Music teachers are responsible for teaching instrumental techniques, scales, sight reading and music theory. The majority of music teachers help pupils to prepare for music examinations, auditions and live performances, building confidence and skill levels. Some might even teach people about recording software, such as Pro Tools and Logic, or teach singing and voice lessons.
Music teachers can be available to both groups of pupils, or privately in a one-to-one session. Group lessons can be beneficial in helping pupils with playing music in unison in preparation for an orchestra or band, whereas private teachers are able to individualise instruction, identifying and using materials that best meet each student’s goals.
An orchestra is a group of performers on various musical instruments for playing music, as symphonies, operas, popular music, or other compositions. An orchestra especially includes stringed instruments of the viol class, clarinets and flutes, cornets and trombones, drums, and cymbals.
A full-scale orchestra playing a symphony includes at least 90 musicians, while a smaller orchestra playing a chamber piece ranges from 15 to 45. Sections of the orchestra can perform separately, too. A string orchestra, for example, includes about 60 musicians.
Orchestras commonly consist of:
String instruments (Violin, Viola, Cello, Bass)
Woodwind instruments (Flute, Piccolo, Oboe, English horn, Clarinet, Bassoon, Saxophones)
Brass instruments (Trumpet, Horn, Trombone, Tuba)
Keyboards and harps (Celesta, Piano, Harpsichord, Organ, Harp)
Percussion (Timpani, Snare drum, Bass drum, Cymbals, Tambourine, Xylophone, Glockenspiel)
A disc jockey, more commonly abbreviated as DJ, is a person who plays recorded music for an audience. Often, this involves aligning the beats of the music sources so their rhythms and tempos do not clash when played together and to enable a smooth transition from one song to another.
The DJs main aim is to engage and entertain their audience. They do that by selecting tracks they think will fit the mood of the crowd. They also account for the situation (is it a festival, club or bar, are people dancing or sat down, etc).
Session musicians, studio musicians, or backing musicians are musicians hired to perform in recording sessions or live performances. The term “sideman” is also used in the case of live performances. Session musicians are usually not permanent members of a musical ensemble or band.
They’re hired by the music contractor, the music producer, the band or the record, film or video production company to play whatever music is going to be recorded at that session.
