Fight Back Against Stereotypes!


     I know this is the generally accepted concern among musicians (and the viola professor from my school would ask people who played badly in studio class if they planned to eat after they graduated) but I would like to be an exception. To not be the musician who shows up to his class reunion in a thrift store suit and having the food at the reunion be the first meal apart from cold canned beans they had eaten in over a week. Granted, unless I become the next Yo-Yo Ma or start a musician reality TV show, the “poor” is likely inevitable…but 2/3 isn’t so bad, is it?

(note: at the time this was posted, this blog’s author was BOTH a poor and jobless musician)
