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!
