It takes much more than being a talented musician to live your life as a full time professional. The moment you realize there is so much more, than mastering your instrument/voice, most (young) musicians are overwhelmed and (might) get stuck. You simply don’t know where to start.

Getting stuck is a key moment! It’s the perfect momentum for you to discover and explore new ways to get to the next level(s) in your personal development.

Facing major changes in life are always challenging. Finding solutions is the key to your personal and professional growth. Your road travelled will be inspiring and rewarding.

PERSONAL COACH PROFESSIONAL MUSICIAN is your guide in your process and development.

“We’ll cross the bridge when we get there.”
Well, … here’s the bridge. 
You’re the one who’s about to cross it. 
I’m the one to guide you.

– Jasper Somsen
