Advice for Current Students: Take advantage of all of the time you have to play your horn while you are in your degree program and make yourself known in the community. No gig is too small! Once you're out of your degree program and you begin teaching, or begin your career out of the performance field, the opportunities to play and practice are few and far between unless you make it a priority. This becomes more obvious when you have children!!!!
