Dependent L Permits and part-time work

1) Based on experience or hearsay, how difficult is it to find part-time employment if you are a Dependent L Permit holder?

2) What options does a musician have while living in Switzerland with a Dependent L Permit?

My partner and I, both Americans, are moving to Basel in January. My girlfriend was just issued an L Permit for a 1-2 year postdoc position in Basel. I was given a dependent L residency permit.

I am currently completing my own Ph.D. in the oh-so-lucrative field of music composition. My goal is to move to Basel in January and focus on completing my degree until April or May when I defend. I would then like to find part-time work while continuing to write music and preparing for university level positions post-Switzerland.

I currently work as a music teacher and university lecturer, and thus have few marketable skills for an industry city like Basel. And my German language ability is intermediate/low-functioning.

Any advice or input (other than commenting on the decision to go into music in the first place ) would be greatly appreciated.
