How difficult is it to find a music director job for high school?

I am currently a college sophomore at Sam Houston State University and was wondering if I should maybe transfer to University of Houston to have perhaps a better rep? Would it be easier for me to get a job if I graduated from there instead of SHSU? #music #highschool #musiced #music-production #academic-advising

Your career search engine is key to finding all those job opening as a Music Director. Where you graduate is not necessarily a key factor unless the hiring school favors alumni. There are currently over 1,000 Music Director openings on LinkedIn. You can use key words such as 'Urgent Openings' to assist you in your search. You may be able to start out as an apprentice or part-time while still in college to get a leg up when you actually graduate. Also try a church choir or school play for some volunteer work to put on your post graduate job resume.

Sam Houston has a phenomenal education program and is the oldest teacher preparation school in Texas. However, the University of Houston has an accredited music school. Both universities provide solid programs for both degrees and your job will not likely be affected by the university you attended, but the degree earned. In Texas, most school districts will have job postings and online applications on their websites. I encourage you to look into school districts in your area and explore their websites for job opportunities.
