    How do you get a good paying career in the trumpet business these days to where you could live average or slightly above average off of it?

    I think maybe you should shoot for average. I don't know many trumpet players living the high life.

    I live with 2 roommates, that is probably slightly above average.

    So in other words unless your a natural or insanely good at trumpet shoot for a main job outside of trumpet?

    That would be probably the most obvious idea, but if I do this I don't want it to get to the point where I put my trumpet part of the career so far off to the side away from my other one that I'm not taking it to its full potential or having enough time to really get into it.
