Course Description

Charles Daellenbach is a renowned Canadian musician who is best known as the co-founder of the brass quintet, Canadian Brass. He was born on December 29, 1941, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and began playing the trumpet at a young age. Daellenbach earned his Bachelor of Music degree from the Eastman School of Music and his Master of Music degree from the Catholic University of America. In 1970, he co-founded Canadian Brass with his friend Gene Watts, and the group quickly rose to international fame for their unique style and approach to classical music. Daellenbach played a pivotal role in shaping Canadian Brass's sound and style, and the group has since performed in over 60 countries and recorded more than 130 albums. Today, Charles Daellenbach is considered one of the most influential brass players of his generation and has had a significant impact on the world of classical music. 

Estate planning and the music business coincide in several ways. For musicians and music industry professionals, estate planning is crucial to ensure that their assets—including copyrights, royalties, and intellectual property rights—are protected and passed on to their heirs according to their wishes. Musicians also need to consider the future of their artistic legacy, and estate planning can help in preserving and managing their music catalog and memorabilia. Additionally, estate planning can provide musicians with options for philanthropy by establishing charitable foundations or trusts that support their causes and provide tax benefits. Overall, estate planning is an essential aspect of financial planning for anyone in the music business, and it can help musicians and their families in securing their financial future and legacy.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the importance of estate planning for musicians and music industry professionals

  • Outline the legal and financial aspects of estate planning in the music industry

  • Identify key strategies and tools for estate planning, charitable foundations, and intellectual property protection
