Marching Band Copyright Licensing

So it’s marching band design season, and you’e got  a bunch of pieces you’d like to use in your next Fall show.  However, they are all in a foreign language, you have no idea who the publisher is, and you have no idea where to begin going about acquiring the necessary rights to arrange – enter, Rawlins Law Firm.  Keith Rawlins, Esq. is your one stop shop for music licensing, for marching band, winter percussion, winter guard, or any other activity that requires permission to use copywrited music in any way shape or form.

Why RLF?

You are probably asking why you should choose Rawlins Law Firm for copyright services. The answer is simple: RLF will provide defense services free of charge in the event defense services are needed for a license RLF procured. Keith Rawlins is licensed in federal courts, the courts of original jurisdiction for copyright infringement suits.  Keith C. Rawlins is founder of Rawlins Law Firm, which provides copyright services and is located in Houston, Texas. Keith is a musician and an attorney, and he has deep roots in Texas music education:

  1. First, both his parents are retired Texas music educators, and they raised Keith in the Texas music education system.
  2. Second, he attended Spring Oaks Middle School and Spring High School (Class of ’97), both schools in the Houston area.
  3. Third, Keith attended the University of Colorado at Boulder (B.A. Music ’01) on a full music scholarship as a result of his excellent Texas music education.
  4. Fourth, Keith’s musical achievements include: Texas All-State Orchestra (’95-’97), first chair all-state percussionist (1997), Bands of America Champion (1993), Texas State Marching Champion (1994), DCI Champion (2000), DCI Drum Champion (’99-’00), DCI Timpani I&E Champion (1997).
