What would Jack say? What will Emm Gryner say?

To find out what Emm Gryner will say, everyone is invited to the Jack Richardson London Music Awards Education Day at the London Music Club April 16 at 9:30 a.m. Gryner will be the keynote speaker at the Jack Richardson London Music Awards Education Day.

Sound Check for Success is a free expert critique session at the event. And who better to answer that question “What would Jack say?” than his son Garth Richardson, himself a Grammy-nominated, Juno winner and founder of Nimbus Recording and Media Arts. Garth will be joined on the panel of experts by Dan Brodbeck and Rob Nation. Brodbeck is both a Juno and JRLMA award winner and teaches music industry arts at Fanshawe College. Nation, also teaches in Fanshawe’s program, is co-owner of EMAC Recording Studios and is a past judge, and chair of the Producer of the Year selection committee for the Junos.

Participants are asked to submit tunes in advance for feedback. Later in the day, the three panelists, plus Ryner Stoetzer, will offer a Master Master Class. Stoetzer has composed, arranged, produced and performed music for television series, documentaries and specials, including Scott Moir’s and Tessa Virtue’s gold-medal ice dance at the 2012 Vancouver Olympics.

It’s not often such high-calibre expertise is gathered together to offer free advice to emerging artists.

“It’s a great opportunity for musicians – young or seasoned – to get feedback on their work, hear from industry experts – and it’s free,” said Mario Circelli, chair of the awards.

Another panel, made of Dayna Manning, Edward Platero and Adam Caplan, will give advice on branding your band using video. Called Seeing Sound, participants submit video and EPKs to the website in advance for valuable insights from the guest panel.

Seasoned road warriors Brandon Eedy, Cory Crossman and Luke Roes (Ivory Hours) share tips in Life is a Highway. The complexities of licensing will be demystified in a session with representatives from SOCAN (Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada).

Mike Lawless, director, digital business development at Sony Music Canada, and Jon Box, vice-president of development at Universal Music Canada will talk about The New Song and Dance – Digging into the business of music in the digital age.

The entire day is free, presented by the Ontario Institute of Audio Recording Technology (OIART) and the London Music Office. The first 100 attendees receive a free delegate bag.
