What is the total number, and percentage change from year-to-year, of
musical performance graduates from higher education facilities in the
United States over the last ten or so years.

The National Association of Schools of Music has a research project
called "Higher Education Arts Data Services"
which may include this data.  But they want $500.00 for non-members to
look at the report.  If you have access to this report, this may be
the easiest means to this answer.

I am conducting a report on the viability of music performance as a
career path in todays entertainment marketplace.  I would like to take
this performance graduate data/trend that you could provide, and peer
it against various data sets that I have (all US based) including:

    * Total music industry revenue (simply for scope)
    * Total revenue from live performances/touring (NAICS 711...)
    * Total musical instrument sales/rentals (NAICS 451140)

It is my hypothesis that over the past five to ten years, the economic
viability of individuals to pursue performance as career has
diminished, but could soon take a drastic turn for the better.  I
break the range of performers down into three categories 1) the
dabbler, 2) the amateur and 3) the professional.   While category 1 &
3 may have been the strongest in revenue over the past decade, amateur
musicians are now finding themselves in a marketplace where they have
more control over their destiny than every before.  And, could soon be
changing the entire makeup of what our "music industry" looks like.

The data that would be most helpful would be the following:

    * Total number of colleges/universities offering a degree in music
performance (undergraduate & graduate)
    * Total number of students that have enrolled in a music
performance program (undergraduate & graduate)
    * Total number of students that have completed a music performance
degree (undergraduate & graduate)

The data I am looking for is all US based, and I would also like to
have multiple years so that I can run a trend analysis on these

Thanks for your help, cheers!

Even if a researcher had access to this report, they would not be able
to reprint any of the information from it on a public website.  You
will want to increase your price to get an answer from Researchers.
