JOB DESCRIPTION: Singer
Singers memorize musical selections and routines, or sing following printed text or customer instructions. They also sing a cappella or with musical accompaniment. Equally important, singers have to interpret or modify music, applying knowledge of harmony and voice production to individualize presentations and maintain audience interest. They are often called upon to perform before live audiences, or in television, radio, or movie productions. They are expected to seek out and learn new music that is suitable for live performance and/or recording. Finally, singers make or participate in recordings.
Every day, singers are expected to be able to speak clearly. They need to listen to and understand others in meetings. It is also important that they note differences between sounds as they change tone and volume.
