BE YOUR OWN MANAGER

At the beginning there were many questions – questions from classical musicians around the globe to two people who worked in the classical music world for decades – Bernhard Kerres and Bettina Mehne. Then they decided to write a book with many answers to all the questions they received. A podcast, workshops and courses followed. Today it is the BYOM Academy.

The book, Be Your Own Manager, is currently available in English and in Japanese. You can order it on Amazon, other digital platforms, and on our webpage.

The BYOM Academy offers a variety of career management and entrepreneurship courses for classical musicians. From the 12 week base course, to specialised workshops, individual coaching, group coaching and more.

The Podcast

Bernhard Kerres does a regular podcast on managing your career as a classical musician. It is also called Be Your Own Manager Career Podcast. It is available on all major podcasting platforms.
