By profitable I might mean how fulfilling...
If you work some good couple of hours a day as an employee, teacher, etc but you've studied music professionally, how uplifting is it to work as a musician for someone whose music you find pretty boring, anodyne or even disgusting? Is it worth the effort? Does it teach you anything?
I've been slaving away at the job, at times feeling a tad frustrated 'cos I can't strike the balance at times (work/music) but now I've been working (playing) for a pop singer whose 1st album has just come out. Of course she's not well-known but she's playing alive pretty often. But I'm getting a bit fed up with it. Should I take the plunge and go on with this, that is, is this fruitful and I'm not aware of it, or should I use my free time to play music I like, record, play with my band etc etc?
Thanks in advance for the advice!
