also most performace jobs outside of like studios/professional orchestras are almost purely based on how good at band you are, and are done via audition, and a playing resume, not based on where you got your degree, or if you have a degree. If I'm wrong on that let me know, but im pretty sure im right.
No argument coming from me. I don't even know what a Percussion Performance degree entails, so I'm just going off what it kind of sounds like. How do those fall under teaching though? Those falling under playing make sense though; isn't that what percussion performance is? I do stand to be corrected, I'm quite ignorant when it comes to a degree other than Recording Arts.
Also, I would think if you have a degree in performance you'd be pretty good at band, right? I could be wrong, but then again, some people do skim their way through their classes.
playing and/or teaching. debatable on the degree=good part. if you did like 90% of your undergrad on marimba, it wont help you get a studio drumset gig.
we're on the same page lol

Music (specifically marching styled) majors rarely get anything money-wise in life.
I pretty much turned my drumming into a side-hobby, but you could always do what my friend did. We're both pre-medical majors looking to go to med school, but he still was able to march corps with Academy this year. It's just going to take twice the effort of a normal person.

I got accepted to Penn State's school of music for percussion, but (regrettably) I switched majors last minute, so I'm not a music major.
