Taking the next step
How does a musician get into professional playing situations/paying gigs? I feel as though I am stuck playing with people who are not interested in professional work. How do I move into circles of more serious musicians? I've been taking lessons to fill the gaps of knowledge that may persist in my playing, but I still am not sure how I can get involved with working professionals. How can I find out and be invited to auditions?
Thanks you for reading.
