Students who graduate with a degree in music are notoriously contributing to a high unemployment rate. Why is this you ask? Well, this can be attributed to the fact that a degree in music won’t help one become a popular artist or musician. Most people are fooled to think once they earn a Music degree they will earn a recording deal, and that just is not the case. In fact, record sales are slowing due to a high frequency of music pirating, so modern artists are being forced to seek new channels of revenue through tours, merchandise, apps, etc.
