You didn't ask me, but you can eke out a pretty good living doing gigs and short term contracts. Wedding musicians make bank. Relationships with local musical theaters, ballet and opera companies, and churches can create consistent income. And private students.

The news here is saying the 'Chinese paramilitary' is surrounding HK- WTH is that?

Granted, but I know many professional musicians getting by without an orchestral position. Obviously the pandemic changed everything, for everyone. My brother has an orchestral seat and has been getting by on union stipends for the past year and a half....the future of his organization is in doubt.
My overall point is that you don't have to give up on music as a profession just because some conservatory douche tells you you don't have what it takes to make the NY Phil.

How do you feel about looping? If you're not familiar with the term, it's where you record 4-8 bars worth of chord changes and play over the recording on repeat.
I do some busking and I hate it, but crowds love it.
