Self-employed artists must diversify

I am a self-employed musician and singer-songwriter, and I also teach music part-time. Due to COVID-19, I lost many of my live gigs - which results in 70% of my income. However, I am still able to do some teaching online (though even that has been cut down somewhat). And I'm also doing some live-streaming concerts, which results in some "virtual tip jar" contributions from viewers. So far, it still isn't adding up to near what I used to make prior to COVID-19. But for my own dignity, I need to keep striving to find ways to earn money with my music through this time. Still, it would be helpful if people in my position were eligible for at least some of the income that the CERB is offering. Please consider this. Thank you.
