Toronto Musicians’ Association, Local 149 of AFM Announces Rehearsal Space and Travel Insurance Partnerships

Toronto, ON – June 15, 2016 – With increased travel, housing, and living costs for Musicians in the Greater Toronto Area, especially those touring to the United States, Toronto Musicians’ Association (TMA149) has announced two partnerships to try and alleviate the burden for its members. 

In partnership with Rehearsal Factory, TMA149 members will receive a 50% discount on rehearsal space at all six Rehearsal Factory locations across the GTA for rehearsal time occurring before 6pm Monday to Friday.  “Whether you are about to go on tour, or you are preparing for ongoing gigs, Rehearsal Factory provides the most professional rental spaces in the region, every suite complete with full backlines and PA’s.  With this considerable discount partnership, professional musicians of the GTA can focus on preparing the astounding work they do with a little less pressure on the existing resources that support them” says Michel Murray, Executive Director of TMA149.  The discount is being offered as a three-month pilot project with intentions to renew in the fall. 

In addition to the partnership with Rehearsal Factory TMA149 will be expanding its existing relationship with thePersonal Insurance Group and adding discounted comprehensive travel insurance for musicians on tour, work travel or leisure travel to its list of membership benefits.  “With our current partnership with the Personal, our members are reducing their home, renters, auto and motorcycle insurance expenses by hundreds of dollars per year, often far eclipsing the cost of our annual membership dues.  With this additional elective package, our members can travel on tour, for other work engagements or for leisure, whether alone or with their families and again save significantly.  All while being underwritten by one of the most trusted names in travel insurance for Canadians, the Desjardins group” says Michael Murray, ED of TMA149. 

The Rehearsal Space discount may be accessed by identifying yourself as a TMA149 member at Rehearsal Factory locations (map attached) or on the single booking line for all Rehearsal Factory studios (416) 366-1525. 

thePersonal travel insurance is available for members at http://www.thepersonal.com/tma149.
