Hi Music World. I've just finished three nights of playing in the band for my school musical production. Also in the band were three peris and two college students. The other five musicians have been paid for their services. I was told I would be as well - until 10 minutes before the start of the last performance, when I was informed by my HoD (relatively new to my school) that as I work at my school I couldn't be paid! Two years ago, under a different HoD I did get paid for playing in the band just the same as the other musicians. Naturally I feel a bit miffed and the whole conversation rather spoiled my enjoyment of the last performance -I played some wrong notes too (not on purpose, you understand!) When I questioned my HoD and reminded him I had been paid the previous time he said, "Well, you can always talk to the bursar." I shouldn't have to - it's his job. So, I say, am I being unreasonable? Advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
