You can contact the Music Pool Berlin with all questions pertaining to the music business (Germany specific, but not limited) or ask for help in planning your professional career.
As an introduction we suggest the free 45-minute orientation consultation. In these first steps you can ask all of the basic questions with our consultants that you may have. Examples are: How do I get into the Künstlersozialkasse (artists social insurance), or how to become a member of Gema (collecting agency for music rights). The consultants will be prepared with answers and have suggestions on what steps could be taken, inform you of the monthly workshops we offer, or direct you to other services or people in the city. When the consultation does not suffice the time, the consultant may suggest a further consultation on the expert consulting sessions.
How does it work - Start with the Orientation Consultation:
Simply make an appointment for an orientiation consultation per e-mail or the below web form. One of our consultant team members will contact you and coordinate a meeting. Important: it is not possible to just stop by - please sign up at least one day in advance via email or web form. The orientation consultations take place every Wednesday and Friday.
Workshops, Expert Consulting Sessions, Coachings:
Music Pool Berlin organizes, together with the pool of experts, its own workshops and expert consulting sessions that coincide with question and themes which come out of the orientation consultation. Examples of possible topics are crowdfunding options, or getting your music in film and advertising, or digital rights publishing, etc. All scheduled dates will be updated on our calendar.
In addition, a possibility for an individual coaching may be decided, with the pre-requisite participation in our orientation consultation and by suggestion from the consultant.
Monthly Community Evenings:
Music Pool Berlin organizes monthly community evenings at different venues in the city for everyone to just come by. You find the date, topic and venue of our next community evening in our calendar.

Heads up - in the following form, you will find many questions that all participants in our consultations and workshops need to fill. We are aware that we are asking for lots of your data. Many of the data, we need to collect for the European Social Fund (ESF) that provides funding for our project. Please read also the note on the collection of personal data below this form. Some of the answers will help our consultants to prepare for the meeting with you. We would like to provide a lighter registration process, but the ESF requires the data for statistical analyses of its funding programmes.
