Re: What's your "day" job?
On top of being a 1st year at York U, I teach drums/piano/theory at two music schools, do session work, and gig regularly with my jazz trio and acoustic-pop group.
I make enough money to put me through university and keep myself fed. Not enough for a car, or to move out though! Take out the university tuition and I'd be A-Okay! But I plan on moving to New York, and I have to get much better to be a session musician there!
