last survey I'm going to do.
on: December 13, 2003, 05:09:59 PM
I'm sure that many of you are professional pianists, but there must be people who are not. And I'm really interested in what this "piano forum population" do apart from playing the piano.

So my question is:

What do you do for a living?
(if you are a student, please mention what kind of field you hope to go into; pp = professinoal pianist; pt=piano teacher)

At Uni: 3rd yr medic, also a part time pt

I'm 16-yr-old high school student, hoping to become either a concert pianist, conductor, or composer.  Or any combination of the 3 would be nice.

I'm a student at the Uni. But I don't care what I'm going to be after this. Really depends. I'm just in this changing fase, and stand open for everything.

Hi! I've been a public safety dispatcher (I answer 9-1-1, send fire, rescue, cops, etc.) in central Illinois for twenty years. I majored in Piano Performance at Eastern Illinois University, studying with Dr. Catherine Smith, who was the first woman in the USA to get her doctorate in piano performance. Practical application, eh?

I've taught piano on and off for about 25 years, and currently have twelve studi, ages 7 to 16yoa. They're the light of my life. They keep me inspired and giggling!

I love this forum!

Financial services... back in school getting my MBA, working for a FS firm and studying piano on the side.  I find the later more interesting, but the former more effective at paying the bills :)

In a past life, during the internet boom in America, I was a technologist, working for a small firm which provided consulting services for integrating business strategy and technology.

Im a high school student with dreams of being a piano teacher.  If that doesn't work out, than I would like to be an orchestrator or music copyist.  
but...
i also want money, so maybe study business in University and open up my own piano Store ;)

hmm..

i also don't want to be bankrupt, so maybe be a pharmicist.
