A music CV (curriculum vitae) works just like a resume, but with a few differences. While a resume is generally one page in length, a CV can often run two to three pages. The CV provides a more in-depth look at your experience and qualifications, which can be particularly useful for those pursuing music careers in academia. Music CVs are similar to other CVs, except that they focus specifically on music. A properly formatted and well-written music CV can increase your chances of getting the call for a job interview.

Write your name and contact information in the top center area of the page. Include your full name, street address, city, country, phone number and email address.

Write “Education” in bold. In this section, list each school you attended. Put the school name in bold. Also include the city, date of graduation, areas you studied, what degree or certification you achieved. Like the other areas of your music CV, organize this chronologically, working your way backwards so the 3rd year at Josip Slavenski is listed first.

Write “Performances” in bold. In this section, list notable performances, specifying the venue (such as XXX Music Hall), city, date of performance and your role (such as pianist and conductor).

Write “Activities” in bold. In this section, list any professional activities you participate in, such as music organizations, church choirs, music journal editing, symphonies and more. Be sure to mention any leadership positions you hold in these activities and organizations. This shows your drive toward bettering yourself at music and teaching.

Write “Recordings” in bold. In this section, list any recordings you’ve made that have been or currently are available to other people. Recordings you made that aren’t shared can be left off this list. List the title of the project, the date it was released, the producer or recording engineer, a record label if there is one, plus your role on the recording (for example, trombonist).

Write “References” in bold. In this section, list three references. Include their full name, current position (such as Assistant Professor, Department of Music), their employer (such as MS Josip Slavenski) and their contact information, including street address, city and country, post code, phone number and email address.
