Any lawyers who feel they lost touch with their passion of playing music due to the commitments of time and emotional and physical energy that expend on our career? How have you overcome this and made room for it in your life? Anyone found a way to practice law in a way that your musical knowledge helps you or puts you in touch with other musicians? I know almost nothing about entertainment law.

I don't want to permanently lose touch with a part of myself that I love so much.
