    I just wanted to get some feedback on this.

    At this point I am doing a decent amount of playing outside of school in various ensembles (wedding bands, jazz ensembles and some chamber groups). The more recent problem that Im faced with is that the expeience of playing in all of these varying groups is good but at the same time they I feel with some, Im not necessarily getting anything from it.

    One group performs a couple of times per month and rehearses weekly. I enjoy playing in the group but at times, with a difference in playing levels it makes the experience less enjoyable. At what point do I say enough is enough? :noway:

    any feedback would greatly be appreciated!

    Yee HAW!
    When it isn't fun it's "enough". Which ones could you cut that would leave more time for others that you'd rather put more time in on?

    When you feel that the group is not progressing musically at the pace you are then its natural to consider moving on.
