Music manager Christoph Kregl and booking agent Tim Boening as lecturers
"Bilderbuch" managers teach music management students in Krems
In their last presence module the music management students of MM11 were taught by managers of the Austrian rock band "Bilderbuch" Christoph Kregl and Tim Boening. They demonstrated milestones, obstacles and risks of music managment, as well as the importance of having a nose for the right artists and maintaining an affectionate relationship with them.

Both lecturers, the music manager Christoph Kregl and booking agent Tim Boening concentrated in their vivid lecture, among other things, to bring the young colleagues to the milestones of the music business, as well as obstacles, risks and dangers in the wide field of the music industry. So they started their lecture with the quotation from the famous Alice Cooper manager Shep Gordon, who always warned his artists before working with him: "If I do my job perfectly, I'll probably kill you."
Tim Boening aims to have a good relationship with the artists: "It is our primary goal to meet them with love and a lot of heart. It is actually like a love affair but on a friendly level. This may sound very romantic, but it makes work much easier for everyone. Music manager Chrstoph Kregl agrees:" For this reason, one should only work with the artists, you personally like! "
