Re: Other jobs that still involve music degree...or not.
Sales and management if you can get through the door. Depending on your skill set you already manage budgets and people. It's just showing that off enough to get the first gig then the world of business is at your fingertips.
MUED is pretty specialized. Not a lot of other careers that really let you use your degree. You could teach lessons, or look at private schools. You might look into doing admin work for other music groups like a symphony or educational nonprofit. Get ready for a pretty big pay cut.
I have friends who are doing great in real estate. Others are doing well in finance, specifically financial advisor positions (which are mostly sales).
Probably better to think about what skills you have, that you can pivot into a new career.
