More recently it has been my livelihood. I have been playing for the Suzuki violin academy at Missouri Southern State University- and am playing a book recital- possibly two more book recitals. I also teach four students a week. If I were more aggressive- it would be more. But, for now, I guess four is enough. I have my first adult student this year as well. Things are growing- steadily though slowly. I plan to go into substitute teaching as another means of income. I live with my family and don't have many bills right now- so I am working at becoming more independent.
