This trend began when Jazz started being taught as "a craft" in the colleges.
I am very lucky in that I am a full time jazz musician....this came after decades of working full time jobs and playing weekends....over 40 years worth! I live in a community that supports
the arts and usually play about 2-3 times a week. I can only support myself these days doing this because of all the years of solid employment. God Bless the drummers that have
succeeded in full time musical careers! Everytime I read of someone on this site that has put his daughter through college playing drums etc...it makes me very happy!
