Music performance majors in their last semester of study often find themselves in as destitute a situation as La Fontaine's cricket. Many have succeeded academically, and most have accumulated considerable performance experience within their school. Some have even acquired some professional performance credits. What they lack is adequate preparation for a performance career; they have no means to obtain steady employment in the field for which they were trained. Unlike their colleagues who pursued degrees in music education or in music therapy, these students follow a curriculum devoid of courses in professional development.
