    I know lots of people with a degree in music.

    One is a music teacher in a school and is very poor.

    One is a waiter at a restaraunt and is poor

    One sells real estate and is poor

    One works at a hardware store and is poor

    One sells electrical supplies and does ok.

    One fixes motor homes and does below average.

    One (my sister) answers phones at a catalog house.

    Overall, not a very good average.

    Not a whole lot.

    You could be a teacher in a elementary school, and teach a music class. But you may need to take a few education courses to do that too.

    You "could" be a professional musician, if you know how to play an instrument.

    If you don't know how to play an instrument, you could be a music composer. You could work for advertising and create musical "jingles" for commercials. *shrugs* Don' tknow how much that works, but it's a possiblity.

    Really though, not a whole lot, unless you really stretch it.

    You can pursue a career related to music, such as performing, teaching, songwriting, conducting, arranging, composing and acting.

    Others options include careers as producers, engineers, managers, agents, and in publishing and sales.

    Here is a whole list of things that you can do:
