Fellow teachers: What do you look for in a student to decide they are ready to start playing gigs? I realize each situation will be a little different, but is there a certain point where you start referring the student for professional gigs you cannot take, or encourage the student to start pursuing paid performance opportunities? Obviously I want my students to get as much performance experience as possible, and students of all levels can participate in things like playing in nursing homes. But when you refer someone for a paid gig, that person’s performance (on the harp and overall conduct) reflects on you.
