Self-employed as a musician, mixing or mastering studio - let's talk business!

Self-employment in the music industry brings many things to bear in mind. We'll tell you which ones they are!

In the NightTalk of the Masterlab Academy on January 24.01.19th, 2, Andreas Balaskas, Birger Nießen, Alex N. and Chris Jones from the Peak Studios talked about independence in music and what needs to be considered here. In the XNUMX-hour live stream, the following questions were discussed in more detail:

  • How do I start my own business?
  • What is to be considered?
  • Which direction do I choose as a musician
  • What is to be considered at the tax office, Gema, KSK and others?
  • How do I find out what price I can charge for my services?
