International Business students have diverse backgrounds and areas of interest. Estonian IB student Daniil is creating a career in the music business. Read his comments about combining IB studies and being an artist / a producer:
“My name is Daniil Aleksejev, an IB student of Valkeakoski Campus of HAMK from Estonia. I am personally really interested in the field of music, being an artist and an independent producer. Everything started for me with the foundation of music making software at the age of 16, when I started making my own beats. When the hobby started to give me some income, I realized that I could myself turn into an artist, if I put enough effort and passion in it. “
“This February, I released my first album, called “Hunger”, describing my lifestyle and feelings about moving abroad from the family and friends, the way I felt, the way I saw things around me. Nowadays, I am working on a couple of new projects, producing a Russian artists’ album, whom I cannot yet mention, selling beats, and, of course, working on my next album.”
“For me personally, the music does not anyhow affect my studies, in contrast, it gives me inspiration, and I can easily match studies with my passion. IB studies give me knowledge, on how the market works, how to promote myself in nowadays realities, staying an independent artist, which I like the most about my degree studies.” area of interest.
