=== Concertmaster ===
* http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Concertmaster
The concertmaster/mistress, (from German Konzertmeister) is the leader of the first violin section of an orchestra. In the UK, the term commonly used is leader. Any violin solo in an orchestral work is played by the concertmaster (except in the case of a concerto, in which case guest soloists may be heard).
=== Artistic Director ===
* http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artistic_director_%28music%29
An artistic director may also refer to someone who directs a musical ensemble, and in this medium, is often abbreviated as simply Director. The typical jobs of a musical artistic director are to choose repertoire for the ensemble, come up with an artistic vision for the group and also a long-term strategy for programming, and also to help choose performers if the ensemble is not pre-set. An artistic director may also be—and often is—the conductor of the ensemble and a "jack of all trades", performing multiple roles and even managing the ensemble, although that role is often left to a Managing Director if financial resources are available. A musical artistic director essentially mirrors a theatrical artistic director, albeit working in a different medium.
=== Bandleader ===
* http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bandleader
A bandleader is the leader of a band of musicians. The term is most commonly, though not exclusively, used with a group that plays popular music as a small combo or a big band, such as one which plays jazz, blues, rhythm and blues or rock and roll music.  Most bandleaders are also performers with their own band. The bandleader role is dependent on a variety of skills, not just musicianship. A bandleader needs to be a music director and performer. Often the bands are named after their bandleaders. Some older bands have continued operating under their bandleaders' names long after the death of the original bandleader.
=== Bandmaster ===
* http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bandmaster
A bandmaster is the leader and conductor  of a band, usually a military band or marching band.
=== Director musices ===
* http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Director_musices
Latin for music director, was a title held by music directors especially at European universities or cathedrals; sometimes also at cathedral schools. The title is still used at universities in Sweden. In Finland  it is an honorary award given by the government. Today directores[1] musices are primarily responsible for music activities at a university and choral and/or orchestra conductors.
=== Director of Bands ===
* http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Director_of_Bands
A Director of Bands is the head figure of a marching or concert form of bands, a person who leads a musical ensemble. The Director, by history and tradition, must know all the concepts of music and must be able to teach all different kinds of instrumental musicians in order to make a performance at a certain dateline before the scheduled performance.
=== Kapellmeister ===
* http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kapellmeister
Kapellmeister is a German word designating a person in charge of music-making. The word is a compound, consisting of the roots Kapelle  (“choir”, “orchestra”, or literally, “chapel”) and Meister (“master”). Kapelle derives from the Latin word capella. Thus, originally, the word was used to refer to somebody in charge of music in a chapel. However, the term has evolved considerably in its meaning in response to changes in the musical profession.
=== Music Director or Director of Music ===
* http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_director
A Music Director or Director of Music is a person who directs music. A Music Director may be the director of an orchestra, the director of music for a film, the director of music at a radio station, the head of the music department in a public school, the co-ordinator of the musical ensembles in a university or college (but not usually the head of the academic music department), the head bandmaster of a military band, the head organist  and choirmaster of a church or an Organist and Master of the Choristers, a title given to a Director of Music at a Cathedral, particularly in England.

=== Road Manager ===
* http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Road_manager
In music industry, a Road Manager is a person who works with small to mid-sized tours (in terms of personnel involved, based on size of the Production). His/her responsibilities include (but are not limited to): advancing show dates, making travel & hotel arrangements (for all group members), hiring backline techs (see Road Crew),wor recommending techs to be hired (depending on authority given by artist management), coordinating artist media obligations (normally while on tour, but could be anytime), ensuring artist rider requirements are met, collecting payments due to the artist at show time (or signing off on amount due to be sent via wire, etc., depending on arrangements made by artist management), making vendor payments (or submission of amounts due to vendors to artist management), handling personnel issues, distributing per diem (depending on per diem schedule approved by artist management), and the list goes on.  Depending on the situation, a Road Manager can often be confused with a Tour Manager. But, generally speaking, a Tour Manager will be working with upper-mid to large scale tours, and will often be granted a much greater degree of authority in tour operations.
=== Roadie ===
* http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Road_crew
The road crew (or roadies) are the technicians  who travel with a band on tour, usually in sleeper buses, and handle every part of the concert productions except actually performing  the music  with the musicians.

=== Répétiteur ===
* http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R%C3%A9p%C3%A9titeur
In opera, répétiteur is the name given to the person responsible for coaching singers and playing the piano for music and production rehearsals. When coaching solo singers or choir members, the répétiteur will take on a number of the roles of a vocal coach: advising singers on how to improve their pitch and prononciation, and correcting note or phrasing errors.
=== Vocal Coach ===
* http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vocal_coach
A vocal coach is a music teacher who instructs singers on how to improve their singing technique, take care of and develop their voice, and prepare for the performance of a song or other work. Vocal coaches may give private music lessons to singers, or they may coach singers who are rehearsing on stage, or who are singing during a recording session. Vocal coaches are used in both Classical music and in popular music styles such as rock and gospel. While some vocal coaches provide a range of instruction on singing techniques, others specialize in areas such as breathing techniques or diction and pronunciation.
=== Conductor ===
* http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conducting
Conducting is the act of directing a musical performance by way of visible gestures. Orchestras, choirs, concert bands and other musical ensembles often have conductors.
=== Choirmaster ===
* http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Choir#Structure_of_choirs
Choirs are often led by a conductor  or choirmaster. Most often choirs consist of four sections intended to sing in four part harmony, but there is no limit to the number of possible parts as long as there is a singer available to sing the part: Thomas Tallis wrote a 40-part motet entitled Spem in alium, for eight choirs of five parts each; Krzysztof Penderecki's Stabat Mater  is for three choirs of 16 voices each, a total of 48 parts. Other than four, the most common number of parts are three, five, six and eight.
=== Organist and Master of the Choristers ===
* http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Organist_and_Master_of_the_Choristers
An Organist and Master of the Choristers is a title given to a Director of Music at a Cathedral, particularly an Anglican Cathedral in England. The tradition dates back to the Middle Ages. He is both the organist  and the choirmaster.  As Organist and Master of the Choristers, he is primarily occupied with the training and conducting of the cathedral choir. The Sub-Organist or Assistant Organist usually plays at cathedral services, although he will also be expected to take over the choral duties if the organist is unavailable.
