Other opportunities include studio work as performers and writers or freelance work. In addition, some graduates move into business and industry or other music-related careers. 

Those interested in pursuing a professional career as a performer usually continue directly into graduate study upon completion of the undergraduate degree. The same is true of students interested in securing a position as a jazz studies teacher at a college or university.
