Music is our business

Dear reader,

Working conditions in the music industry are obviously very different from nine-to-five jobs, whether for employees or entrepreneurs, artists or accountants. Also thanks to Covid 19 many players are becoming aware of the high mental health price they have to pay at the expense of their work and passion. 
At our upcoming Focus Session “A Booster For Mental Health” on Nov 11 we ask, what are the triggers that promote exhaustion, addictions and other problematic behaviours? Or better yet, how they can be avoided in the future? 
Join us for that in our digital conference platform.
