Business Basics - „How to be prepared for the life as a freelance musician“
No one said life as a musician would be easy - especially not if you want to earn a living doing it. The days of being fully provided for by a lucrative record deal are over, or rather, only very few people get to enjoy that these days. Most musicians therefore prepare for an independent career - many do so consciously because they prefer to keep control over their artistic creativity. However, to make self-employment work, there are many things you should be prepared for: From financial security to insurance, good planning and organisation and overall a set of soft skills that can be useful to you in your professional work. This workshop provides the basics you need to plan your career professionally in a practical and clear way.
- finances (invoice, taxes, calculation)
- self management & organization
