Your Future

Career preparation is an important part of the student/faculty mentor relationship. While many music students continue on to graduate studies, careful advising and planning of course work have led Cal Lutheran graduates to successful careers teaching in public schools and universities, working in the church or in establishing their own private studios. Graduates have also become successful singers, instrumentalists and conductors throughout the country. Music related work is also available in industries such as media, advertising, arts management and in the exciting ever-changing film, television and recording industries.
