A composer is a person who creates music. To be a composer a degree in your Composer Resume sample is not a must, however, knowing how to play musical instruments and how to read music is essential. This career is not for everybody, composers have to be constantly inspired to be able to create music. They do jobs for singers, advertisement campaigns, movies, etc. But this music has to be catchy, in order to remain in people's memory for a long time.

Besides playing the instruments, composers must also have knowledge of music styles and genres, for this reason, it is a good idea to study a career related to music.

There is a lot of competition in the field; however it is estimated it will grow in a 10% in the next years. Getting a job with a very good salary is a combination of talent and luck. The salaries are influenced by the state, industry, popularity of the composer, importance of the company, etc. In general, the media salary of a composer is of $40 000 per year, being the independents, the ones who receive the highest payment.
