I hope nobody took my comments as a 'fall back' meaning, as Mr. Bertolet is saying. I personally want to teach more then I would want to perform. I love teaching people, it gives a person new challenges everyday. I am a sophmore in college, and granted, I have never had a full band, or anything close, I am looking forward to that challenge if I ever get that chance. My comments were mostly directed to those that love to teach, but would rather perform. A person might find that if they gave teaching a chance, they would fall in love with it, *ie Mr. Holland's Opus*, Just keep your mind open to all options. I have heard many educators speak about this, because, in the road of life, you never know what you are going to encounter, and you should be prepared for every oppurtunity that arises.
