Musicians as lifelong learners

Rineke Smilde

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review


    Musicians today face major changes in the social-cultural landscape and thus in the music profession, which is rapidly changing. The changing cultural life leads to a shift in nature of the career of musicians, suggesting more flexible career patterns and a great need for transferable skills. Musicians hold no longer a job for life, but are increasingly self-employed, so entrepreneurship becomes more and more important. They often have a portfolio career, where they combine several forms of professional activities.
