I too started off as a music major during my undergrad. I would first suggest you take a semester where you focus on core courses (maybe two or three) that way you are still making progress towards a degree but also take a couple of major exploration courses. If your college or university has a list of majors, look through that. Once you've looked over that list, cross off all majors you would have no interest in doing and from the majors you have left, do a bit of research at least looking as some of the courses offered. Pick a couple of those courses to take next semester. This will help you figure out what other areas you might be interested in pursuing. I would also recommend you seek out assistance from an advisor on your college campus. They can help more one on one with looking at major exploration and appropriate courses to that.
