Woohoo for shameless self-promotion!
I just hooked up with an agent who's booking me to play the trombone on cruise ships. I'm going to do one month this fall, six months next year before I go back to school, and then as much as I feel like after I finish my master's. They're going to pay me the better part of $2000 a month to perform for about three hours a day, plus free room and board.
I don't have to work a 40-hour day job ever again!!
