  1. Hi, Adam. Great discussion ad very apropos for most of the musicians I know. Making concrete financial decisions in a shifting economic environment is particularly difficult for many of my colleagues. I’ve posted this to my FB page in hopes that it might start a discussion here in Marin, where institutional support for music non-profits has been steadily shrinking. Congratulations on getting the CNM up and running! Will try to make it into SF for a concert or two.

  2. Thanks for this Adam. Your point about Work for Hire versus Entrepreneurship really stuck out for me. This at a very high level differentiates between the working musician versus the composer. Short term income versus long term income. In comparing this to my career path in music as a teacher, in many ways it is both. Very interesting to hear it in both contexts.
