Could he play for parties? Some musicians do quite well at that, and it would be in the evening and not at a time when he's giving lessons.

A gig providing live music in an upscale restaurant? Or is that slumming it too much?

Presumably because of his health problems, a job in an orchestra isn't in the cards?

Would he be qualified to be associated with a university music school? A friend of mine in addition to performing is dean of music in a community college. He went to Juliard, however, and the credential is very helpful.

Oooh, ALL excellent suggestions. Also, do not forget the lowly church gigs. There are special occasions (church anniversaries, baptisms, confirmations) that sometimes the Music Director of a church would like to have a violinist at, as well as weddings and funerals. Contact local churches and talk to the Music Director.
