March 9th Tune Up Tuesday  Copyright and Online Performances

Join us on March 9th with Tricia Howe and Simon Henri 

Throughout the pandemic, we’ve all found new ways to cope, and shifted a lot of our practice to online media.  A number of American publishing houses have been sharing information on copyright for virtual performances (live stream and recorded), as well as the communication/Performance rights that are implied by the purchase of printed/digital product. To confirm that this information is accurate for Canada, we sought confirmation with The Society of Composers, Authors, and Music Publishers of Canada. During March 9ths session, Tricia Howe and Simon Henri will discuss and demonstrate ways to ensure fair and legal use of copyrighted materials while teaching in the pandemic paradigm in Canada, including virtual performances.  Much of the content will also apply to community bands, but in all cases if you’re uncertain, you can reach out to SOCAN.

Tricia Howe joins us from Long & McQuade as an industry professional with many years of experience in supporting music education. Simon Henri joins us from SOCAN as a copyright licensing professional with over a decade of copyright experience.

Power of Band in a Pandemic


Students at Marion M. Graham Collegiate in Saskatoon are making music together even though the pandemic keeps them apart. Under the leadership of teacher Deb Flynn, Grade 9 and 10 band students combined their music and drumming with vocals from Quinn Smith, Clara Knox, and Mira Behl; guitar by Alex Conley; and a rap by Keinan Kendall.
