Show Notes

When a musician hits that point where they begin viewing their art as a business, there is some bureaucracy to establish: bank accounts, tax prep and insurance.  These might be anything from overwhelming to annoying, but are important and can bring immense value.

Today Phillip and David focus on the insurance part as they are joined by Laura Donelan, Vice President and Program Manager of MusicPro Insurance - an insurance agency dedicated to the unique insurance needs of musicians to protect their gear from various potential perils, like theft, accidental damage and fire.

Be sure to tune in - insurance has never been so fun and interesting!

Today they have close to 10,000 active policy holders.
The MusicPro program provides coverage for all types of instruments, and recording, sound and lighting equipment.
