It always bothered me that teens can't have a hobby like being in a sport club or music academy.
With these careers they can.
It are 6 music careers and 4 sports career. The careers within each category only difference within the name.
So actually all music careers are the same (except for the name of the instrument) and all the sports careers are the same (except for the name of the sports)
I have made the descriptions this general because I don't have any experience with any of these sports or instruments. I don't want to write mistakes about these sports and instruments so the general approach was the best. If you really want other descriptions for a more detail approach, feel free to request and provide the information to me:

All careers (expensive and original) have different GUIDs. You can use them all together or apart in your game.

Update 2015-03-15
By request I added a more expensive version. So more wealthy families have something to spend their money on.
Level 1: -150
Level 2: -100
Level 3: 70 (to not earn it back right away)
Update 2014-13-12
I added some motive changes to fit gameplay more. Like when doing a sport or playing music fun rises and does not go down as before.

Justification As far as I know there are no after school activities for the sims 2 teens while there are a lot of people doing sport or playing an instrument after school. This would be a great addon. You don't earn money when you sport after school or go to music academy, but you pay (like in real life). It's not much and when reaching the highest level, you can earn it back easily. I don't know much (actually almost nothing) about sports or instruments so you won't read anything tactical about the different sports or details about the instrument. Just general descriptions. It's just the idea that the sims can have these after school activities that counts for me. So I just made it the way I see the career should be made. I can understand some of you will have another opinion. So feel free to request a new teen career here:

Hi! I love this career, but used only few of them yet. Everithing was great, until some chance card appeared.
I could not read the question because the text on one of the buttons did not fit into the screen and the window was very stretched! I had to press this button (I couldn't see any others anyway). In addition in chance card result the wrong sex of the sim was picked up. I looked at this and other careers in SimPE and saw that they all have the same error, all lines in the text lists should be shifted 1 line down. I corrected everything for myself but it would be better for you to edit careers for everyone.
