Pros and cons of being a musician:
John says... Pro: "I get out of mowing the lawn! (just kidding)... Seeing a more global viewpiont of life, people and Christianity." Con: "It's hard being jostled around in the bus and getting sleep interrupted." Stefanie (John's wife) says... Pro: "Getting time to catch up on my `to do' list." Con: "Not having his support/help with the kids and having to mow the lawn by myself."
Advice to young musicians:
"Are you serious?" "Practice, practice and practice." "Find a day job! Seriously though, an important factor that many overlook is to seriously study the Word which is vitally important to a ministry. Secondly, get some musical education and study hard."
