I have enough money to live, so I don't need a regular job anymore. My investments are doing fine, thank you very much. I am looking for a new challenge: get a job as a musician in an orchestra.
My background: I studied piano a very long time ago. Took part in piano competitions for many years. I had won some, but mostly didn't .... sounds familiar to you violinists on here ? Dropped piano because my professor suggested to go into either musicology, composition, or an entirely different field, so I went into another profession.
My preferences and goals: I only want to be a musician in an orchestra. I am only interested in studying a woodwind instrument, a brass instrument, percussion/drum/timpani, or the bass (not the violin/viola or cello ... but bass).
Question: Which instrument is the least competitive regarding a successful audition for an orchestra job? I will play that instrument, and find a teacher for that instrument.
