On Exposure…

This bit from http://theoatmeal.com/comics/exposure makes me think of our music students here in Swope – we get calls all of the time asking for students to perform for the “experience” or “exposure.” You all work very hard every day and deserve to be paid for your work.  Today as we get back into our routines after the crazy snow this weekend, remember that all of your hard work will pay off in the end – after all of this there will be a light at the end of the tunnel, and that light comes with a paycheck.  Keep your eyes on the prize – we look forward to helping you find the right fit jobs for you and to you sending us your students for years to come. 🙂 Cheers to a great Wednesday. Don’t forget to practice!
