    I know everyone has his/her own opinions,

    I’m with you, Sylvia. I think it’s fine to discuss work, even in the medical profession, as long as one doesn’t name names. Hearing about other people’s experiences is a great way to learn without repeating others’ mistakes or re-inventing the wheel. Sometimes you get a whole new perspective on something that never would have occurred to you otherwise.

    I do know some harpists who prefer not to discuss fees, and I respect that, but I don’t mind talking about money. Frankly I find it helpful to know what’s going on in the marketplace.

    I changed all the names of people in the book and didn’t name the places, so even the people in the wedddings probably wouldn’t recognize themselves.

    In that case I see nothing at all inappropriate about it.

    I mean, come one… any time two musicians who play weddings get together stories about the various things that they have seen or experienced at them start to fly. Weddings aren’t national security events or top secret affairs.

    So long as he names and identifying details are changed then I don’t see anything wrong with it. And how else do you learn if you don’t hear other peoples’ experiences?

    I agree, Tony.

    Anne Roos, Jan Jennings, and Marjorie Chauvel have all written books about playing the harp for weddings.
