Musicians and ensembles are more and more becoming entrepreneurs. But there is little knowledge about what this means for a musician and about all the issues related to it. Taxes, rules and regulations, PR, invoicing and contracts are only some of the practical things they have to deal with.
But more than that, being an entrepreneur is a mindset one has to develop.

My Music, My Business is a product of ReCo Culture Management. It comprises one or more modules into an interactive workshop to educate musicians to deal with the challenges they are facing.

René Coolen has extensive experience in organizing music series, projects, management and as a musician. This gives him a perfect understanding of the challenges that face the modern day musician/ensemble.
This workshop offers a lot of practical information and gives food for thoughts.
