1+ Being a professional full time musician is not for everyone. My wife and I are both musicians who perform regularly and still have a "day gig". We met in our college band many years ago and both of us still play orchestra, ensemble or pit work. We own our own business which gives us enough security to be able to afford our "habit". We view our ability to still play as therapy and much cheaper than a "shrink".
