Dual Careers

June 17, 2006 · Print This Article

I’ve been brutally reminded recently about the difficulties of maintaining dual careers. Like so many musicians, I have a “day” job (which seems more like a day and night job recently). So, I thought I’d offer a little inspiration. “Double Lives” by David Heenan is an inspirational read about people who successfully juggle two careers. One great example is Norio Ohga, of Sony fame who also conducts major orchestras. I’m also inspired by the Makaha Sons, great musicians who have also pursued dual careers. A recent article by Wayne Harada describes their journey. http://honoluluadvertiser.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060616/ENT15/606160306/1123
A big salute to everyone who manages multiple careers.


Got something to say?
