We’re a long way from where we started, and that was always the plan.
When we published our first issue of Canadian Musician in the spring of 1979, the goal was simple: to be Canada’s premier publication and a go-to resource for professional and amateur musicians and the industry that supports them.
Doing that successfully means we need to be permanently fixed at the forefront of that industry, and considering how quickly this business is changing, adapting, and evolving, that means we’re always in motion, always pushing forward.
As with the industry in which we’ve rooted ourselves, there have been plenty of highs and lows, but through it all, we’ve continued to push forward to help you do the same.
We’ve always considered Canadian Musician as a conduit for your career development. Some ideas are ours, though many more are collected from elsewhere in the industry. Our strength isn’t in having all of the answers; it’s in knowing where to find them, and how to bring them together to present helpful and constructive stories and solutions.
