Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the General Music Performance field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. General Music Performance majors need many skills, but most especially Active Listening. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that General Music Performance majors need more than the average amount of Coordination, Social Perceptiveness, Monitoring, Instructing, Service Orientation, Time Management, Persuasion, Learning Strategies, Active Listening, Negotiation, Judgment and Decision Making, Speaking, Critical Thinking, Operations Analysis, Management of Personnel Resources, Active Learning, Systems Evaluation, Writing, Reading Comprehension, Complex Problem Solving, Systems Analysis, Technology Design, Management of Financial Resources, Management of Material Resources, Operation Monitoring, Programming, Quality Control Analysis, Mathematics, Troubleshooting, Operation and Control, Equipment Selection, Science, Installation, Equipment Maintenance, and Repairing.
These two visualizations, one a radial chart and one a bar chart, show the same information, a rating of how necessary the following skills are for General Music Performance majors. Toggle between "value" and "RCA" to see the absolute rating of that skill (value) and the revealed comparative advantage (RCA), or how much greater or lesser that skill's rating is than the average. The longer the bar or the closer the line comes to the circumference of the circle, the more important that skill is. The importance of Coordination is very distinctive for majors, but the Active Listening, Coordination, Speaking, Critical Thinking, Monitoring, Reading Comprehension, Judgment and Decision Making, Social Perceptiveness, Writing, Time Management, Active Learning, Instructing, Complex Problem Solving, Service Orientation, Persuasion, Learning Strategies, Systems Evaluation, Negotiation, Management of Personnel Resources, Systems Analysis, Operations Analysis, Mathematics, Management of Financial Resources, Operation Monitoring, Management of Material Resources, Quality Control Analysis, Technology Design, Programming, Science, Operation and Control, Troubleshooting, Equipment Selection, Installation, Equipment Maintenance, and Repairing are the three most important skills for people in the field.
