Happy 1st Birthday to BYOM

Happy 1st Birthday to BYOM

In January, I enrolled myself to a “Be Your Own Manager” course, created and held by Bernhard Kerres. I got to meet a group of musicians, kindred souls, and I learned a great deal on how to manage my music career and how to survive this pandemic by making future plans and strategies. Soon a group of noble and brave souls organized a nexTus Festival (all BYOM alumni), on which I will also participate with my concert “Save the Sea” on May 8th 2021. BYOM academy is celebrating the first anniversary today, and I wish it all the very best, with many successful returns, further success and that this course inspires and educate many more talented musicians. Bernhard is a very dedicated and generous lecturer as well as coach. I am so honored to be part of this outstanding community!

Save the Sea – nexTus Festival

We created a marriage of music and environmental awareness. My concert will take place on May 8th during the nexTus Festival and the major theme will be “SAVE THE SEA”. I will be speaking about the pollution of our oceans and will do my best to inspire people to take care not to pollute our oceans, and try to do even small steps to protect them. The sea is a source of healing our spirit and soul, and an unprecedent source of inspiration. Join me on May 5th!
