Music Ed Mentor Podcast #031: Entrepreneurship and Second Careers

In our previous podcast, April Vargo and I talked about side hustles: ways to make additional income outside of your regular job. In this episode April and I will continue the discussion, talking about side-hustles that could even become a second, or follow-up career to teaching in the classroom. We even discuss the possibility of leaving music education for a different music-related career. Maybe you just want to have a regular job, or something with less-regulated hours. How can you even get started?

Whether you’re part-time, full-time, all-the-time, or “about to be done with this teaching thing” time, there’s something in this episode for you.
