Hello Sabrina,
Most technicians here are independent and work for themselves, alone. There are very few who work full time for universities. These jobs do not come up often as the technicians tend to stay for years. There are music stores which have a full time technician on staff, but many employers prefer to hire outside technicians on a contract basis. Openings are very few, there is not much demand as the market is shrinking more than it is expanding.

Still, many independent technicians can make a fairly good living. Of course these are people who have been in business long enough to establish the size of clientele one needs to stay busy and generate the income needed. I live on Vancouver Island which is a desirable place to live for many people. But many find making a living here is not so easy.

That said, I believe that there will always be a demand for quality work. A solid background in the field is definitely huge advantage. European craftsmen are regarded quite highly here, and rightly so.
