Been in this community music game for a wee while.
It’s a hustler’s life for sure, getting used to not knowing where the work is coming from, but still makes me nervous to the core.
Mum reckons I shud do a PGCE, says she scared of seeing her babies struggle, she didn’t put us through uni with this in mind. Sometimes the 9 – 5 seems real tempting but nah!
Still gonna hang in there, hopefully the universe will provide. Some workshops go amazingly, some leave me sad, but still gonna fight to be the best that I can.

Nah, don’t wanna do formal yet. Love for the kids, but like working with smaller groups, and don’t care if kids shirts are hanging out… Not really.
