I used to be a classroom music teacher, and the music coordinator for a specialist music program in a big public high school. I actually started at that school the year it opened, and built up that program from nothing to over 200 students, with four major ensemble groups. All that within three years!
It was a great job, but it was exhausting - I'm not great at behaviour management with large classes, and I'm terrible at paperwork. As it turns out, coordinating a whole music program by yourself involves a stupid amount of paperwork.
I handed that program off to another fantastic music teacher who's doing an amazing job building it to greater and greater heights. I work two days a week now for a government-run organisation called the Instrumental Music School Services; we're basically an army of instrumental teachers, each of whom visits a number of different public high schools each week, teaching the instrument they specialise in.
I teach voice for IMSS at three different high schools between two days, one of which is the high school I was the music coordinator at! It's a much better job for me. Small groups, (aside from the choirs,) much less paperwork, and just a more fun job in general. I mean, I get paid to sing with little groups of students all day! At the same rate as a classroom teacher! It's a dang good deal.
The other three working days a week, I make my comic. My intention there is hopefully to transition to paid graphic novel illustration work for book publishers. (Or traditional comic publishers, but I prefer the idea of working with book publishers.)
