Re: Other jobs that still involve music degree...or not.
I have a friend who has a master's degree in music from a very prestigious conservatory. He was working at a private school, in a job he loved, but he got RIF'd. When he didn't find a job for the next fall, he enrolled at a community college in a technology field. He now has an associate's degree in some kind of tech (I don't know the details) and he's told me he makes twice the money with his Associate's compared to what he made with his Master's. He made that career shift in his mid-30s and is now in charge of the IT department for a small business.
I think about that every year, somewhere around STAAR testing and UIL prep.
