Almost all of ours do. By my estimate, about 80% of our music graduates
initially enter some area of the music profession, and most of those are
still working in some field of music 5 to 10 years after they graduate.

This is in part due to the "etc." mentioned above. In addition to music
education and performance, we also offer music therapy, music/business,
Suzuki pedagogy, etc. And, within all those degrees, we still include a
strong performance component, while at the same time pointing the
curriculum toward the practical aim of preparing students for jobs.
