both. .

I have about 20 students right now, I'd like to expand that to about 40 or 50.  I'm working on a couple of job openings at two local colleges and I'm getting good reports from the freelance community.  I played a couple of weeks ago with a small local orchestra and got two more gigs with bigger orchestras before I left there.

I also manage a team of bagpipers so I get plenty of gigs and management fees from that.

Being a working musician is busy. . .

My formal degrees are in Saxophone Performance, but I also play bagpipes professionally, and I double on clarinet when necessary.

Congratulations!!  I teach piano parttime, also working on the accordion, harmonica. :)  I like the bagpipes, have a friend who got married with the bagpipes playing the wedding march.  8)  Can't say I'd go that far though.
