Guardians of Music

The Guardians of Music programme was started by the Copyright Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers Incorporated (COSCAP) as an educational programme targetting young people primarily between the ages of 11-16 years old.  The programme has been approved by the Ministry of Education and is supported by the Ministry of International Transport and International Business and the Ministry of Family, Culture, Sports and Youth.

The programme focuses on not only music and copyright but also on career opportunities within the creative sector.  The students are visited by staff of COSCAP and the supporting Ministries as well as one of the “Guardians”.  The Guardians are members of COSCAP or other creative organisations who speak to students about working in their field – music, visual arts, literary arts, design, architecture etc.  Students in groups of no more than 30 are also provided information on copyright, the role of COSCAP, plagiarism, piracy and the importance of creativity.  Sessions are generally 60-90 minutes and are very interactive with questions and answers and multimedia presentations.

To have the Guardians visit your school or to be a Guardian please contact COSCAP at
