T

he business lost three remarkable people over a short span recently – drum icon Bill Ludwig, longtime Selmer executive John Massa, and Milwaukee’s own Music Man, Bob Kames. Looking over their career achievements underlines sharply what makes this a unique industry. Bob Kames’ appetite for music and music promotion was unbounded. He ran Bob Kames Wonderful World of Music stores in Milwaukee for 42 years, was a Hammond sales star, performed with Lawrence Welk, hosted his own TV show, and recorded more than 70 albums. In the early 1980s, Kames’ record producer heard a tune at a German music fair and shipped it off to his client. Kames recorded it right away as “Dance Little Bird,” but it became known worldwide as the “Chicken Dance.” Reflecting on this wedding reception and bar mitzvah staple years later, Kames noted the song has only two chords and doesn’t even change for the bridge. “This stupid little thing, it’s infectious,” he concluded. John Massa held a number of executive sales posts at Selmer during his career. Beyond his business achievements, however, was the courageous life he led as a handicapped person. Affl icted with polio at the age of 12, he was wheelchair-bound for the rest of his days in an era long before the Americans with Disabilities Act and various other improvements later implemented for the disabled. Always cheerful and generous with his time and thoughts, John traveled widely on business – including 17 consecutive Frankfurt Music Fairs – and never let his physical situation get him down. “I’m lucky!” he exclaimed during his NAMM Oral History interview in 2006. “I’ve been married over 60 years, I have two children and 8 grandchildren, and I was able to work 43 years in a row.” Bill Ludwig had sold the family business and the new owners were in the process closing down the Ludwig factory of Damen Avenue in Chicago when I had a chance to interview him back in 1984. You’d think Mr. Ludwig might be a little down on this occasion, but quite the contrary. He humorously reminisced about Ludwig’s early days, when the end of silent movies also was the death knell for many of the company’s percussion and sound-effect products … how Gene Krupa came to Ludwig looking for a free drum set, was turned down, and went on to become a sensation playing Slingerland … how Ludwig got a measure of revenge decades later when Ringo Starr took a shine to a Ludwig set in a London shop window. But after a run of more than 70 years as a family business, Bill Ludwig looked at the rising tide of offshore competition and seemed quite content to be moving on, which he did with aplomb, spending his last years touring and lecturing on his first love, drums and the drum business.

BRITISH

BLONDE

CALIFORNIA

VT BASS

The legendary crunch of British steel and Greenbackstyle speakers delivers searing blues to UK anarchy from this Anglo-voiced pedal. Tough Bluesbreaker overdrive, the throaty roar of a Plexi or the ballsy smack-down of a ‘70s Metalface, it all adds up to a well tasty spot o’ bovver, Brit-style.

The tower of power pumping through a stack of 10-inchers is the legendary bass tone for players who enjoy being heard. Bask in thick, articulated tones, from chunky funk with the ubiquitous flip top, to the higher gain growl of indie rock Clean focused thump to dirty earthquaking rump, you dial it in.

Upfront Gibson Goes to Court in Video Game Dispute Gibson Guitar Corp. recently fi led a complaint against Activision, makers of the wildly popular “Guitar Hero” video games, asking the company to desist from selling all versions of the game. Gibson claims the games too closely resemble a Gibson virtual-reality patent from 1999. Activision subsequently fi led a preemptive suit against Gibson, asking a federal judge to declare the game does not violate the Gibson patent. Contrary to myriad online reports and blogs, however, Gibson has not fi led a lawsuit against Activision on the 1999 patent claim. The 1999 Gibson patent is for a product, previewed at that year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) that allows the user to simulate participation in a concert by playing an instrument and wearing a headset with 3-D display and audio speakers. After this warning shot to Activision, Gibson took the litigation route, suing retail giant Wal-Mart and five other mass merchandise chains selling the “Guitar Hero” video games, claiming it violates the Gibson 1999 patent. The federal lawsuit, fi led Mar. 17, calls for Wal-Mart, Target, Kmart, Amazon.com, GameStop, and Toys “R” Us to stop selling the popular games.

On Mar. 21 Gibson was back in court to fi le a patent infringement lawsuit against Viacom’s MTV networks, Harmonix, and Electronic Arts relating to the “Rock Band” video game and Harmonix’s previously developed game, “Guitar Hero.” This suit, fi led in Federal District Court in Tennessee, relates to the same patent involved in the earlier suits against the mass-merchant retailers of “Guitar Hero.” Harmonix developed the first “Guitar Hero” game and was later bought by MTV. Electronic Arts publishes “Rock

Band” and another company, Activision Inc., and the retailers, either develop, distribute, or sell one or more of the games in the “Guitar Hero” series. Gibson has been a high-profile partner in the “Guitar Hero” games. Activision licensed the rights to model its video controllers on Gibson guitar models and to use their likenesses in the game. Activision has said that by waiting three years to raise its claim, Gibson had granted an implied license for any technology.

TC ANNOUNCES BREAKDOWN IN GIBSON TALKS … deadline for agreement not extended The TC Group announced on Apr. 10 that its negotiations for a merger with Gibson Guitar have collapsed. Discussions regarding a potential merger between the two companies have been, the TC statement said, “intensive” for both parties, but their ability to consummate the deal within the targeted timeline proved too much. “A number of issues remained unresolved, and both Gibson and TC agreed that it was best that the merger proceedings not continue,” the statement read. On Jan. 18, Gibson Guitar and TC Group had announced the plan to merge. The announcement was made at the NAMM Show in Anaheim by Gibson chairman and CEO Henry Juszkiewicz and the CEO of TC Group, Anders Fauerskov.

RapcoHorizon Sold to RHC Management, Investors The RapcoHorizon Company, a whole owned subsidiary of VTG Holdings Inc., announced Mar. 31 that they have signed a definitive sale agreement as of Feb. 29 with RHC management, in conjunction with Midwest Mezzanine Funds, and Busch O’Donnell Capitol Partners, both equity investment groups, for the sale of the company’s stock and assets.

IAJE Files for Bankruptcy Despite drastic efforts to cut expenses and raise emergency funds, the International Association of Jazz Educators (IAJE) board on Apr. 18 voted to file for bankruptcy under Chapter 7 of the Federal Bankruptcy Law. The announcement was made by association president Chuck Owen. Owen said a Kansas bankruptcy court will soon name a trustee to oversee the situation, examine IAJE’s financial records, and mount an independent inquiry into the causes of its financial downfall, as well as disposing of the remaining assets of the association with proceeds distributed to creditors in accordance with Kansas and Federal law. The board will no longer be involved in operation of the organization and will at some point resign.

”Years of dependence upon the IAJE Conference as a primary (but unreliable) revenue stream and the launch of a wellintentioned capital campaign (the Campaign for Jazz), which generated a meager response but required considerable expenditures in advance of contributions, drove the association into insolvency,” Owen continued. “Sadly, the attendance at the [2008] conference in Toronto (the lowest in 10 years) exacerbated an already critical situation, depriving the association of the cash-flow needed to continue daily operations as well as the time needed to seek alternative resources.” Owen also noted that IAJE chapters are either separate corporate entitles or voluntary associations with their own boards,

constitutions and bylaws and IAJE views them as completely independent entities. “Ultimately, however, the trustee and the court will make this determination and it is anticipated that the trustee may request certain information from the chapters in this regard,” he noted. The 2009 IAJE International Conference in Seattle has been cancelled. However, there has been some discussion among members of mounting a regional conference in its place. Lou Fischer, U.S. Board Representative, is fielding inquiries: ljazzmanf@yahoo.com. The international offices of IAJE closed their doors at the end of the day on Apr. 18. Should there be additional questions, members may submit them to info@iaje.org.

Upfront Trade Regrets: William F. Ludwig II The percussion business lost one of its true luminaries last week with the passing of William F. Ludwig II, the former president of Ludwig Drum Co. and son of the company’s founder. He passed away in his hometown of Chicago at the age of 91 after being in failing health in recent years. Ludwig’s father, William F. Ludwig Sr., and his brother Theobold built the Ludwig & Ludwig Drum Company around a bass drum pedal they invented to meet the needs of professional drummers in 1908. Ludwig became the world’s largest drum company in the 1920s. Bill Ludwig’s playing career began at age eight, when his father brought home a practice pad on a drum stand, an instruction book, and an oversized pair of sticks. His daily practice was arduous, he later recalled and, in reference to the practice pad, said he grew to hate “the smell of gum rubber.” However, the regimen eventually made him expert in rudiments. After high school, he attended the University of Illinois and played out on weekends for four dollars a night. As a young man, Bill Ludwig saw the fortunes of the American drum industry rise and fall. The advent of talking movies put theater drummers out of work and the stock market crash of 1929 forced his father to sell the company to C.G. Conn

in 1930. In 1937, William F. Ludwig and William F. Ludwig II founded the W.F.L. Drum Company. Bill Ludwig II served in the U.S. Navy during World War II, where he used his skills to train drummers in the art of military drumming. Thousands of soldiers learned to march to the beat of drummers trained by Ludwig, who reached the rank of Chief Petty Officer before leaving the service in 1945. In 1955 Conn exited the drum business and sold the Ludwig name back to Wm. F. Ludwig II. Under his guidance, the Ludwig Drum Company once again became the world’s largest drum company. A milestone in the company history came in 1964 when the Beatles appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show with Ludwig drums. The resulting demand for Ludwig drums forced the family to add a night shift. The Ludwig family sold the company to Selmer in 1981, which later relocated manufacturing from Damen Avenue in Chicago to North Carolina. Bill Ludwig worked as a consultant for Selmer, and in his retirement perfected his lecture/demonstration, “A History of Drumming in America.” The presentation included a demonstration of the effects devices used by theater drummers in the heyday of si-

lent movies. In recognition of his educational efforts and general contributions to the arts, Capital University in 1987 awarded Ludwig an honorary Doctorate of Humanities degree Though he no longer had a vested interest in Ludwig Drums, Ludwig for decades acted as a goodwill ambassador on behalf of Selmer and, later, Conn-Selmer. He appeared regularly at major industry events such as the NAMM shows, the Frankfurt Music Fair, The Chicago Drum Show, and PASIC. In 1993 PAS inducted him into the Percussive Arts Society Hall of Fame. His father was already a member, having been inducted in 1972. They are the only father-son members of this elite group with the exception of the Zildjian family. Ludwig penned his autobiography in 2001, producing the first drafts on the manual typewriter he’d used for his correspondence for over 50 years. The book, The Making Of A Drum Company was published by Rebeats Publications. Ludwig is survived by his son, William F. Ludwig III of Chicago, his wife Lisa, and daughters Maggie and Olivia; and daughter Brooke Crowden of Irving, Texas and her husband Bill, son Will and daughter Marguerite. Ludwig’s wife Marguerite predeceased him in 2002.

Bill Moffit, Band Arranger, Clinician Hal Leonard Corp. has announced the death of Dr. William C. Moffit on Mar. 5 in Jacksonville, Fla. at the age of 82. The former marching band director for Michigan State, the University of Houston, and Purdue University was an exclusive arranger for Hal Leonard in the heyday of marching bands, from the mid-1960s to the early 1980s. 12 MMR

Moffit arranged more than 450 marching band pieces published in the Hal Leonard Soundpower series. These works collectively have sold more than one million copies, and several titles remain in print. Moffit was also internationally regarded for his Hal Leonard-published bestseller Patterns of

Motion. The book outlined the most often-used field drill designs for marching bands, based on a system of four-person squads moving in kaleidoscopic patterns. Patterns of Motion ushered in a brandnew style in marching, and college and high school bands across the nation readily adopted its concepts. Comments Hal Leonard Chairman and CEO Keith Mardak, “WorkMAY 2008


Upfront ing with Frank Cofield and Zane Van Auken, Bill did the lion’s share of our marching band arrangements in the 1960s and ’70s. He was an extremely talented musician, and a tireless clinician for Hal Leonard, despite his busy directing schedule. He was an allaround nice guy, and will be missed by anyone who knew him.” Moffit hailed from New Philadelphia, Ohio, and joined the Coast Guard after high school, becoming the fi rst teenager to perform in the Coast Guard Jazz Band. In 1980, he served as president of the Texas Bandmasters Association. More than a million people heard Moffit’s arrangements as he directed

the Fanfare Trumpets at the Olympic Games in Los Angeles in 1984, and the Pan American Games in 1986. He was named Indiana’s Music Arranger Laureate in 1988 by the state’s General Assembly, the same year he was awarded the title of Professor of Bands Emeritus. Moffit is survived by his wife of 27 years, Jeannette; children; grandchildren; and great-grandchildren. The family suggests memorials to the William Moffit College Professorship Endowment. Checks should be made payable to University of Houston and mailed to: UH Band Office, 120 School of Music Bldg., Houston, TX 77024-4017.

Paul E. Fry, Sr., Connecticut Piano Dealer Paul E. Fry, Sr., founder of Fry’s Westport Fairfield Piano and Organ, Fairfield, Conn., passed away on Mar. 23 at the age of 73. A resident of Fairfield County, Conn., his entire life, he served in the U. S. Army and attended the University of Bridgeport. In 1959, he and his wife, Barbara Fry, opened a piano and organ establishment in Westport and relocated to Fairfield in the 1980s when he purchased and built a two-story showroom. That same decade, they expanded to Danbury. Fry, an avid traveler, remained active at The Parish of Christ’s Church in Easton, Conn. He also worked closely with the local school system, encouraging the need for music programs.

Offering everything from digital pianos to complete organ installations, Fry staunchly supported the Yamaha brand, including the Clavinova and the Disklavier. This year, to commemorate Fry’s 50th anniversary in retail, Yamaha Corp. of America honored him with its Founder’s Award in recognition of his “many years serving the music community” and his “dedication and loyalty to Yamaha Pianos.” Two of Paul Fry’s sons continue to run the business. Dennis A. Fry serves as the company’s new president, and David F. Fry is a product specialist in sales and a piano technician. Another son, Paul E. Fry, Jr., lives in Charleston, S.C.

“We can’t as a business continue to have these increases. It’s killing us, and killing our employees.” Tony Falcetti, Falcetti Music, Springfield, Mass.

W

hen faced with a 15% increase in premiums, Mick Faulhaber of WardBrodt Music counted it as a 15% raise for his employees. “We have been absorbing these increases but, really, they can be equated to a pay raise,” the Wisconsin dealer reasons.

“We can’t as a business continue to have these increases,” declares Tony Falcetti of Falcetti Music, Springfield, Mass., noting that the dealership’s premiums endured still another doubledigit increase. “It’s killing us, and killing our employees.” Chris White of Wisconsin’s White House of Music probably sums it up best, and with brevity: “I feel very much like a victim!” White laughs. The issue of health care insurance can be daunting and overwhelming, yet it’s not all hopeless for the typical music products retailer. There are different options and strategies to cope with it, but one aspect seems to be universally agreed upon: getting the employee more involved is tantamount to survival. “We’re going through a transition from where the insurance used to pay for MAY 2008

everything and there was low employee involvement, to a situation where the employee has much greater involvement and responsibility,” says Steve Simon, an account executive for CBIZ, an organization that consults on insurance plans for businesses. And is there perhaps a silver lining in current crisis? Some think so. “Health care in the U.S. is predicted to consume upwards of 16% of our Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by 2014,” says Susan Benigas of Amp-It-Up for Life, a company that promotes health in the workplace. “The increases are unsustainable. Employee health benefits cost U.S. employers an average of $580 per employee per year in 1980, a rate that had increased to an average of over $7,500 per employee per year by 2005. That’s an increase of close to 1,200%. Again that’s unsustainable. “The only solution is for Americans to begin to take personal responsibility for their health, and that means adopting more healthful lifestyle choices.”

MI Tries to Cope Faulhaber, owner of Ward-Brodt Music in Madison, Wis., has been on the front lines of this issue, tirelessly advocating for small businesses in the state capital. The majority of his 90 employees are part-time, but those who are fulltime are offered a choice of two HMO

plans. “We have a big one, and then a smaller one,” he says. “But we have had to increase deductibles, and increased the amount of money the employees contribute.” They have gone to a Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA). An employer funds this program, and the contribution cannot be paid through a voluntary salary reduction agreement on the part of an employee. Employees are reimbursed tax-free for qualified medical expenses. Any unused amounts in the HRA can be carried forward for reimbursements in later years. Faulhaber, though, is most frustrated with his state government. “Wisconsin does not allow deductions for Health Savings Accounts (HSA), and we have more mandates than any other state in the union,” he says. (A mandate is a requirement that the health care plan covers, or at least offers coverage of, of legislative directed procedures. These typically include traditional benefits such as mammograms, but can also include services that some find questionable such as acupuncture and message therapy.) Also, the state does not allow business to “pool” or join together with other businesses to qualify for a better, less expensive plan. “Every year there is legislation aimed at reforming these situations, but every year they are shot down because they ‘don’t go far enough,’” he sighs. “But you have to start somewhere.” MMR 17


“You can’t keep passing on all these expenses [to businesses] – not when you’re competing globally.” Mick Faulhaber, Ward-Brodt Music, Madison, Wis.

Faulhaber also expresses distaste for Wisconsin’s “BadgerCare,” Medicaid program. Efforts to expand it amount to “socialized medicine,” he says. “There have been proposals for a payroll tax to support it, and it’s going to put me out of the health care business. You can’t keep passing on all these expenses [to businesses] – not when you’re competing globally.” White House of Music has about 180 total employees and about 50 full- timers. Of the full-timers, around 20 are on the dealer’s health insurance policy.

Getting Healthy for the Health of the Business “Small businesses that aren’t selfinsured are in a tough spot,” says Susan Benigas. “But for companies that are self-insured, those who are affected by every dollar their employees spend on health care, it can be a huge cost savings.” In this case, “it” is … well, us getting off our butt and getting in shape. And in what may become a cottage industry, Benigas is cofounder and president of Amp-It-Up for Life, a St. Louis-based organization that provides businesses the resources to promote health in the workplace. “Worksite Wellness” is becoming a catchphrase in corporate America, and instituting programs for businesses large and small are allowing companies to have happier and more efficient employees and – of course – drive down health care costs. “An astonishing 70% to 75% of all health care spending goes to conditions that are ‘preventable,’” reports Benigas. “So modifying behavior is critical.” But she acknowledges – and the very existence of her company demonstrates – that the proverbial Doritos chips are stacked against the average working Joe and Jane. The problem is the dairy, beef, and alcohol industries are all very savvy

at making good health seem an elusive and complicated quest. Then there is the pharmaceutical industry, which she says is the biggest culprit. Think of all the cholesterol and blood pressure pills being sold when it’s estimated 80% to 90% of those who use them could control their problem with diet and exercise. Since the 1980s health care costs has increased 1,200%. “That’s unsustainable, yet the whole idea of promoting health in the workplace is a fairly recent phenomenon,” Benigas continues. “Employers are realizing they need to be proactive in prevention and in wellness.” She acknowledges it’s not easy to do. “One of our core areas is to emphasize health communication – it’s that ‘drip method’ of constantly communicating a consistent message. You can’t force someone to change, but you can make him or her start thinking of making changes in behavior. We put a plan together that’s a series of building blocks of messages, organizing peer group support, brownbag events, fitness challenges, and so on. But this is not a quick fix.”

“ … 70% to 75% of all health care spending goes to conditions that are ‘preventable.”

“Our costs are consistently going up,” relates Chris White. “Unfortunately, we’re trying to manage that cost with our employees, and the plans are getting watered down. They are not as rich as they used to be. There are higher deductibles, and sometimes fewer options.” One option not on the table for White is a wholesale government takeover of the health care system. “I’d say no to a single-payer system,” White says. “There are other options being discussed, but they all appear to be stuck in the ever-present committee in offices around the world.” “Our strategy was to shift to a very high deductible plan that also provides a high level of benefits,” says Jerome Murphy of Massachusetts-based M. Steinert & Sons. “We chose Blue Cross and Blue Shield PPO. That reduced the premiums dramatically. We then hired a third-party administrator to manage a self-insured scheme to pay 100% of the deductibles. We calculate each year a COBRA rate which is what our employees’ contribution is based upon. The COBRA rate considers the cost of the self-insured portion from prior years along with the straight BCBS premium. “It was a really good bet the first year, not so good the second, but still substantially under what we would have been paying. All we need is to have not too many folks use the entire deductible.”

NAMM Gets More Involved Recently NAMM announced it has collaborated with the association’s health care broker, Mercer, to offer members a range of discount networks for savings on a variety of services. Under the new “Smart Business Interactive” portal, www.namm.org/membership/healthcare/, members have access to alternative medicine, dental, vision, chiropractic, and doctor visits. “The doctor visit discount can be particularly helpful if they are enrolled in a limited medical insurance plan or have family members or employees without coverage,” NAMM noted in a news release to members. “In addition, employers who can’t afford to provide insurance to their staff members may opt to provide a selection of discounts as an employee benefit package or as a supplement to an existing plan.” “All businesses are struggling with health care,” says Joe Lamond, president and CEO of NAMM. “And while NAMM MAY 2008


is still working in Washington as part of a national coalition to pass legislation that will allow associations to use groupbuying power for the benefit of small business members, this new program provides access to coverage right now. While there are no easy answers to this situation, NAMM’s goal is to help our members who need it.” The NAMM/Mercer options break down this way: HMO plans for small employers are offered as an option among 28% of companies; 7% offer indemnity; 15% Point-of-Service; and 64% offer PPO plans. Lamond observes, “High Deductible Health Plans (HDHP) with Health Savings Accounts (HAS) are increasing in popularity with nearly 14% of all firms offering a HDHP as an option, and that number is growing rapidly.”

“The biggest challenge overall for our industry is health care plans require a minimum amount of hours per week.” Jeff Tarae, Music Matters, Roswell, Ga. Jeff Tarae, COO of Music Matters, a three-store operation in the Atlanta area, is looking to NAMM for help on this issue. Currently they are working to offer their employees health care in an effort to retain and recruit good candidates. Tarae says: “The people who have signed on with us are looking for this to be a career for them, and we want to provide them with enough opportunity to do that,” and that involves a health care plan. “More companies like ours are looking to set something up, and just in the past year we dedicated to do a large part of it through NAMM,” he says. Already it has helped them retain some people who may have looked elsewhere, he reports. Tarae gives high marks to Mercer. “They were great. They helped us answer questions regularly, and acted as a good point of contact for me from an optional standpoint. I know it’s a lot to take on for a small company. But Mercer really had a hands-on approach and even gave me a MAY 2008

point-of-contact person there, who we’ve leaned on a few times within the year.” Yet Tarae faces a typical dilemma: not all his employees qualify. “Some only want to work 20 hours a week,” he points out. “The biggest challenge overall for our industry is health care plans require

a minimum amount of hours per week.” Typically music store employees, especially teachers, might also work for another music store. “Health care now is an option for them, but it works both ways. They have to be available more for us, and we have to provide them with enough stu-

The Big Picture on Small Businesses “On average, small business pays 18% more than large business for the same health care benefits,” says Todd Stottlemyer, president and CEO of the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB). “It’s clear that the bottom line for small-business people is the cost of health insurance and the growing expense of health care. And they go handin-hand.” He adds that it’s having a national impact on an already distressed economy, as 70% of all new jobs in this country are created by small businesses. The NFIB is an advocacy organization representing small and independent businesses. A nonprofit, nonpartisan organization founded in 1943, NFIB represents 400,000 members. “Health care has been our members’ number-one issue for over 20 years,” adds NFIB senior manager of affairs Amanda Austin. “When small businesses try to be competitive, want to retain and attract good workers, it’s a very important item.”

ployee is something that should have been happening much sooner.” Why are costs going up every year? Austin says that there are many factors, including that people are living longer and thus using more care. State regulations for a smaller businesses with locations in more than one state can drive up costs. The insurance industry, like so many industries, has seen a rise in buyouts and mergers, and that naturally leads to less competition. “Blue Cross/Blue Shield has a strong hold on the market, and that makes it harder for others to compete,” she adds. “They, in turn, can offer ‘take it or leave it’ options. The inability to allow small businesses to pool with other companies is frankly not fair, but check with your local chamber of commerce, as some are able to help do that.”

The Trend Toward HSAs Falcetti Music has six stores in Massachusetts and Connecticut, with around 75 on the payroll. Of those, about 25 or 30 are on the company’s health care plan. “We actually are in the middle of renewing our plan right now,” Tony Falcetti

says. “Our old one is going up 16% again, and so we’re going to try a Health Savings Account (HSA) system. After some analysis, we think it will save money for the company and the employees in the long run.” Similar to the idea of an IRA, the savings account portion of the HSA plan works in conjunction with a high deductible health insurance plan. All the money deposited in the HSA is 100% taxdeductible. The insurance company will pay the large bills, those covered in excess of the deductible (say, having a baby.) But the “small” bills – those to set a sprained ankle, for example – are paid out of the account. In Falcetti’s case, the employee must put in $1,500 for single plans, and $3,000 for family plans. “Initially, the employee has a little more out-of-pocket, but the employer has substantial savings,” Falcetti says. “Other advantages are that employees can put as much as they want in the HSA tax-free, and they don’t lose it going from year to year. If a person doesn’t have any medical expenses in a given year, they actually come out ahead.” For the worst-case sce-

nario situations, the account is overseen by an insurance company which covers and offers discounts for big-ticket health care items. But that is not so easy. “This takes a lot of educating the employees,” Falcetti admits. “It’s a learning process that involves spreadsheet analysis.” If the organization didn’t make these changes, he said health benefits would cost upwards of $100,000 a year after this latest double-digit increase. “We’re trying to be proactive with this because we can’t afford another 16% increase,” Falcetti says. “We did that two years ago, and went to a higher co-pay to try to keep it under control.”

Healthier Lifestyles Critical The health care imbroglio has one not-so-unintended result: the employee is being asked to take personal responsibility for their health care expenses, and by extension, their health. First, when a non-emergency accident happens, the employee might be more apt to go to one of the growing number of urgent care facilities popping up throughout the country than the expensive emer-

gency room. For doctor visits, they are going to be much more sensitive to costs and may decide to shop around, or at least asked more questions of the doctor regarding cost of treatments, medicines, and procedures. Finally, those employees who hit the gym, don’t smoke, and watch their weight are going to benefit the most from this kind of systems. CBIZ consultant Steve Simon, who has been providing information on controlling health insurance costs to businesses for three decades, remarks, “There’s been a lot of cost-shifting, both in terms of premium contributions and out-of-pocket expenses for employees. Deductibles go up and people are paying more for less coverage.” He says the current trend for all businesses is to get their employees to live healthier lifestyles. “Lifestyle is a direct cost to health care,” he says. “In the short term, you try to have employees become more responsible for living a healthier lifestyle through incentives and disincentives.” Simon points out that the older traditional model of a health care plan really fostered a credit card mindset, requiring little thought or responsibility. He tells his clients that wellness is increasingly becoming a priority in the workplace, and not just because it’s a feel-good-right-thing-to-do, but because it can influence an employer’s

medical cost. Also, a healthier work force is a more productive workforce. “As more employees become more aware of promoting a healthy lifestyle, the insurance companies will take notice.” In theory, if you get your workforce healthy, and you avoid the cost of a large claim – cancer from smoking, surgery because of an inactive lifestyle, low birth-weight babies, etc. – you can lower your cost or at least use that as a bartering point when switching from one plan to another. Simon says it’s affecting some large companies’ decisions on who they hire: the applicant who looks like he’s running five miles a day might have an edge over the guy who looks like he’s spending five hours a night playing X-Box. Americans have been badgered about their health, but now that it’s increasingly affecting their company’s ability to be competitive and thrive, and (gulp) possibly affecting his or own pocketbook, maybe HSA is the ticket out of this problem and to a longer, healthier life. “There’s a little more work for employees to understand these HSA plans, but it also makes them more aware and responsible,” says Falcetti. “And it’s absolutely an incentive to be healthier.” Something has to happen though. As Faulhaber states bluntly: “The way things are going, small businesses can’t win.”

Beware

of Health Insurance Scams: … bogus plans can expose employees to huge bills By Phillip M. Perry

E

veryone wants cheap health insurance. And who hasn’t been upset by the double-digit premium increases we’ve seen in recent years? No wonder employers are always on the lookout for plans with lower premiums.There’s nothing wrong, of course, with shopping for a better deal -unless an employer gets sucked into an insurance scam that leaves everyone high and dry with un-reimbursed medical expenses.

24 MMR

“Employers face huge financial risks when trying to cut costs by signing up with cut-rate health insurers,” warns James Quiggle, director of communications at the Washington, D.C.-based Coalition Against Insurance Fraud. “They can end up providing themselves, their employees and families with fake coverage that literally destroys their lives by leaving them with potentially big medical bills they have to pay out of their own pockets.” That’s scary stuff. And health insurance scams, unfortunately, are on the increase, according to a recent study from the General Accounting Office (To obtain a copy of the study see the sidebar, “Get More Information.”) The GAO study concluded that in a recent two-year period: ` Over 140 bogus companies were in operation. ` They sold coverage to at least 15,000 employers. ` The bogus plans covered more than 200,000 policyholders. MAY 2008


` `

Over $252 million in medical claims were left unpaid. Employers with fewer than 50 employees were particularly vulnerable to scams since they lacked the staff to investigate insurance offerings.

What steps can you take to protect your own business from this nightmare?

`

Stop, call, and confirm When considering a new health insurance plan, step number-one should be a call to your state insurance department to make sure the carrier is licensed to do business in your state. “We like to remind everyone of the phrase ‘stop, call, and confirm,’” says Lee Barry, assistant commissioner of the office of consumer protection services for the New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance. “Your state insurance department is good at discerning information that will either vindicate a carrier or suggest something is amiss.” Experience shows that too many employers don’t place that call. “It sometimes defies logic that so many businesses have failed to take such a simple and obvious step that could have saved them and employees a world of hurt and misery,” notes James Quiggle. Many employers let such things fall through the cracks because of crowded schedules. Maybe another reason is wishful thinking: Who wants to look a gift horse in the mouth? When you confirm the legitimacy of your own prospective insurance plan, keep in mind these tips: ` Make sure you call the correct department. Depending on the state, the appropriate office goes by the name of “state insurance department” or “insurance regulator” or “bureau of insurance.” Don’t confuse that office with the “secretary of state” or other department which registers corporations. A bogus outfit might well have its corporate papers in order. (You can quickly fi nd your state’s insurance department using the Internet. See the sidebar, “Get More Information.”) ` Specify precise information about the prospective carrier. Be aware that bogus carriers often mimic the MAY 2008

`

`

names of legitimate companies. So get your information from the materials that have been mailed to you by the carrier. Check out the precise spelling of the name, the mailing address, and any other identifying characteristics. Send samples of the marketing literature and plan being offered. Your state insurance department will be able to review these materials for legitimacy. “Give the department as much information as you can in as granular detail as you can provide,” suggests Quiggle. Remember, too, that scams often produce highly sophisticated marketing brochures and related materials. Confirm the legitimacy of your broker. “Learn about the person who is trying to sell you the plan,” cautions Lee Barry. Agents and brokers, referred to as “producers” in the insurance industry, must be licensed to do business in your state. Once again, your state insurance department will be able to confirm this. Provide the exact spellings of names and addresses. Call a few of the network physicians. Does it appear that a new plan has all of the physicians your employees want? Hold on: Not everything may be as it seems. “Very often a plan will claim to have a significant network of physicians in an area,” notes Barry. “But when it comes time to pay claims the physicians disclaim any knowledge of the network.” Lesson learned: Call a few of the listed physicians before you sign to make sure they really are in the network. Give special attention to specialists. Request references from the issuer. Call other employers to see how they have been treated by the plan.

Scrutinize group purchase plans You are likely to be solicited more than once by organizations that peddle group health insurance plans called multiple employer welfare arrangements, or MEWAs. These organizations include more than one employer in a single plan in order to aggregate the number of covered

Red Flags to Watch For While bogus health insurance plans do their best to look legitimate, you will often see these “red flags” that suggest the necessity of additional due diligence: ` The premium seems well below the market norms for what you and other businesses of your size normally pay. ` The agent seems too eager to sell the policy and too vague in details. ` It is too easy to sign up without standard medical tests. ` The agent claims that the plan does not need to be licensed in your state. The proffered reason might be that federal ERISA already regulates the program. This is a common dodge that indicates a bogus program. ` The plan requires your business to join a shell association in order to validate the concept of group coverage. The rule of thumb to remember here is that any association for which a policy is designed should exist for reasons other than simply buying insurance. “Very often such associations are comprised of businesses which have nothing in common other than they breath air,” says Tim Ryles, an Atlanta-based consultant and an expert witness on insurance regulatory matters. Very often the policies issued for these “air breather groups” do not conform to the normal understanding of group insurance. ` In a variation, adds Ryles, a bogus plan may attempt to achieve an air of legitimacy by asking a prospect to join a “trust” which may carry the name of a legitimate bank as sponsor. In reality this bank simply holds the policy in a vault and has nothing to do with the management of the policy. 26 MMR

individuals, a practice intended to reduce premiums. These outfits warrant a special level of due diligence before signing on the bottom line. “MEWAs have long been characterized by a lot of fraud in the workplace,” warns Mila Kofman, a researcher with the Health Policy Institute at Georgetown University, Washington, D.C. “Some are completely phony; others are legitimate, but are themselves taken in by scams. Businesses considering purchasing insurance through group purchase arrangements should be extra cautious making sure they are legitimate.” How to do so? Once again, your state insurance department is your friend. “MEWAs come in two broad categories: ‘fully insured’ and ‘self-funded,’” notes Tim Ryles, an Atlanta-based consultant and an expert witness on insurance regulatory matters. In the first category, an insurance carrier stands behind the plan. Ryles emphasizes the importance of making sure the carrier is licensed to do business in your state. As for the “self-funded” category, these MEWAs are not backed by a licensed insurance carrier. Make sure any such organization has gone through the extensive registration process mandated by your state. “In any case, “ warns Ryles, “I would suggest that employers check out the credentials of people behind any MEWA.” If you must go with a MEWA, most experts suggest selecting one which has the backing of an insurance carrier. “A fully insured MEWA is your best guarantee,” cautions Barry. “We do get frequent calls from consumers about self-funded plans that do not pay claims.” In any case, you will want to have a MEWA’s documentation scrutinized carefully by an expert on insurance matters. If the organization claims to be fully insured, do the documents confi rm? How strong fi nancially is the MEWA? If it claims backing from an insurance carrier or a bank, does that financial institution guarantee the payment of claims, or does it simply provide so-called “stop loss” insurance that protects the issuer of the insurance but not the employer? One special caution: Run away from any MEWA or other insurance plan that claims it is not regulated by state law. For example, the sales person may claim an offering is “an ERISA plan” which is regulated by federal law. Appealing to the federal Employee Retirement Income Se-

curity Act (ERISA) of 1974 is an old ruse. “Fraud perpetrators often insist they are selling ERISA plans, and that therefore the state insurance commissioners cannot regulate them,” warns Ryles. Largely in response to this popular ploy, Congress amended ERISA in 1983 to make it crystal-clear that MEWAs are subject to both state and federal oversight. The state, indeed, is responsible for regulating a MEWA’s fiscal soundness. These words from a warning leaflet issued by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners say it best: “Legitimate ERISA plans are established by a union for its own members or by an employer for its own employees. They are not sold by insurance agents.” All insurance plans, to recapitulate, are subject to regulation by your state’s insurance department.

Reduce risk The risk of getting stuck with a bogus health insurance plan is very real, and the current situation in which employers are squeezed between escalating costs and increasing competition makes the hazard all the greater. “When you have a market where people are desperate for affordable health insurance there will always be opportunities for criminals,” cautions Mila Kofman. “To the extent we have demand and insufficient supply, there will always be criminal activity.” The business which wants to avoid crippling financial loss must stay vigilant. “An employer institutes a health plan to attract and retain good employees,” concludes Barry. “Getting stuck with a bad plan and the nightmare of unpaid bills means a lot of angry employees, which is exactly what the employer wanted to avoid in the first place.”

A Note Kevin from Joe... Have We Lost Touch? Okay, I admit it: I’m a communications junkie. I mean, how did we do business before mobile phones and the Internet? How did we survive? The answer is quite simple—we talked to people one-on-one. Recently, I attended a trade show for the trade show industry, an event I hadn’t gone to in years because I thought I was getting all of the information I needed sitting at my desk at NAMM. Epiphany #1 – Immediately I saw people I hadn’t seen in years. It was a wonderful reunion of friends with similar interests and challenges. One look into their faces told me volumes about their current situations, and our long overdue discussions generated new ideas and revelations. Epiphany #2 – I’m not the only one experiencing some of the challenges happening in my career and life—and some of my peers had solutions that could help me do my job a little better. Epiphany #3 – The pulse of the industry energized and inspired me. Epiphany #4 – I learned new things and not just from the seminars offered. I found out about changes that could affect decisions I was about to make, learned that a close friend had passed who I didn’t even know was ill and had the chance to catch up with an old friend going through tough times. Yes, the music products industry is changing at an alarming rate. And yes, technology can feed us a tremendous amount of data. But nothing beats the power of face-to-face. Come to Nashville and experience that power for yourself. Reunite, share, get energized and learn from your peers. I promise you’ll have at least one epiphany ‌ probably more!

“T

His bright view of 2008 is based on an astounding 2007 that included ranking numberone on iTunes U, being featured on a popular Nickelodeon show, and receiving a pair large grants, including one for $350,000. It all adds up to a lot of free instruments and music lessons to economically disadvantaged school kids. •

this way, and by just moving the chart, how to play the popular chord progression in different keys is shown visually. “It’s a shaped-based approach, based on the root,” Wish explains. “It’s how guitar is learned so often – learning barre chords, for example. They learn that chords are a root, the third, and the fifth, a pattern, without learning what the exact notes are. And now you have these kids playing chord progressions that is the point-of-entry on guitar. We can instantly have two children who have never played the piano having a two-chord jam session and it’s compelling.” He’s aware that such an approach might raise eyebrows, especially among those who are formally trained. It does beg the question: is playing a pattern on the piano that allows a novice to play two chords without knowing what the notes are actual music making? Yes, Wish says. When children learn to speak, they are using one word or two words, and we consider that talking. They don’t know what’s a noun or a verb yet, but a sentence formed by a five-year-old is still communication. “It’s not about lit-

eracy – writing has its place, is a fantastic tool, but it’s just a part of communications. I say that if you can play one chord and participate in a jam session, you’re playing music. Most musicians, living and dead, never learned to read music.”

“Social Entrepreneurs” Little Kids Rock was also recently awarded a $375,000 grant from the Goldhirsh Foundation. Part of a new breed philanthropy, the foundation takes a venture-capitalist view toward non-profits. They are most known for their work in funding brain-tumor research, but since 2006 the Goldhirsh Foundation has supported project proposals from socalled “social entrepreneurial” ventures. Not content to just give money to worthy non-profits pursuing good causes, they really “look under the hood and kick the tires” before supporting an organization, Wish comments. Wish says all he had to do was take the representatives into his studio, and use his educational approach to seal the deal. “None of them had ever played an instrument, and I said I just needed one

minute,” Wish tells. “I put one on drums, one on piano, and a couple on guitar and immediately we had a believable jam session. Then we got the grant!” It was their single greatest contribution. It’s was also a nice addition to another grant they received from the Draper-Richards Foundation, which donated $300,000. Also supporting social entrepreneurs, this organization also looks to fund those they believe are social entrepreneurs who can take their organization to national levels. “They fund what they will believe is the next big charity, the one that will go nationally, and so it’s a big honor to receive their support,” Wish says. “They want to make sure a group has what it takes to really thrive before they give.” The bulk of the money from the grants will go to paying more staff, including a development director and another fulltime program person, he said. “Working on the strategic side, our plan has us growing by a factor of five by 2010, which would be 50,000 students,” Wish concludes. “Also, we are looking to open a regional office or Dallas, L.A., or one of the other major markets we are in.”

“Initially we envisioned two worlds – an mPATHX-enabled world, and a non-mPATHX enabled world,” Menas explains. It’s a two-pronged approach. The company is introducing the concept to manufacturers hoping they adopt the technology and build it into their products. For those that don’t, there is the SmartRack, a 19” 1RU computercontrolled AC/DC power distribution unit. It will deliver both AC and the different DC voltages required by digital instruments like keyboards, pro audio products, and other electrical/electronic devices in and outside the rack. It is fully programmable with upgradeable firmware and software. “It uses a heck of a lot less energy, you’ll be able to program the amount of power into each channel – so if you need 15 volts for your keyboard, and 16-1/2 for your Apple computer, you can dial it in,” Menas notes. The savings in electricity will appeal to many.

“As it stands now, most of these wallwarts waste 38% to 50% in electricity each,” he continues. “What we do is replace the entire device with a higher-quality twoconductor wire system. We hope manufacturers adopt the technology, which will facilitate communication via power supply and the connected device. In a postmPATHX world, the musician would only grab a cable, plug in the product, and the product would then know just how many volts – 9, 15, 21, whatever – it needs to run on. And we get rid of the noise, the heat – and even suppress the surges.” Musical instrument retailers themselves are a prime candidate for the racks, he adds, pointing out that the savings to a retailer for in-store displays would be $20 to $50 per year for every wall-wart eliminated. “I love this technology,” says an exuberant Menas. “Once I realized what a problem these warts are, the ideal of getting rid of them was important. We needed a simple solution.”

“ … most of these wall-warts waste 38% to 50% electricity each. What we do is replace the entire device.”

What is a ‘Wall-Wart’? The slang term “wall-wart” is named for a certain kind of AC/DC transformers. These “warts” are over-sized AC plugs used to convert AC to DC electricity and then provide it to charge/operate DC powered devices. Why do warts even exist? Most believe they’re a bad solution to a very real problem. Think of the electrical outlet working as a fire hydrant-type conduit for electricity: power pours out at 120 volts AC. The problem is many digital products require far less DC-type electricity. A digital piano might require only 15 volts, for example. So these warts (also called “bricks”) are there to convert 120 volts of AC to much smaller DC voltages. In the process a tremendous amounts of energy may be wasted – by some reports an estimated 58 billion kilowatts in the MAY 2008

U.S. in one year alone. Also, they create unwanted noise and heat problems. Some warts even burn energy when the devices they power are not even turned on. Overall, they waste an estimated $20 to $50 per wart per year according to Consumer Reports. The problem has become better known since President George W. Bush referred to such devices as “energy vampires” in 2001. Currently there is legislation being looked at in a number of states, including California, to reduce the level of waste caused by these devices. In addition to this energy efficiency problem and the excess noise they create, musicians dislike their bulky size, and the fact that their considerable weight can cause the unit to fall out of a socket, or cover up an adjacent wall socket and thus prevent its use.

How did I get here: “I never thought I would be, or want to be, in the musical instrument business – it just sort of evolved.” Party of one: “When I started, there were a lot of drum stores in the Seattle area; now I’m the only one in Washington State.” Career low point: “I thought I was going to open my door, run a couple of ads in the paper, and the world would come streaming into my store … that eventually happened, but not for a while.” Ringo on line two: “Career high points include seeing some of my young students go on to become great drummers … that and the times when Charlie Watts comes in and spends the better part of an afternoon here,

and when Ringo Starr calls me up and asks for something special …” The most important thing about doing business with a manufacturer is: “You need to make yourself someone that they want to take care of.” Most unpleasant part of the job: “The mundane things – writing ad copy, dealing with insurance agencies, filling out credit applications … right now I’m working on a credit application with Yamaha and I can’t believe anybody would want to know this much about anybody else!”

I’ve made lots but then they usually take me to a place I wasn’t expecting to go.”

Best part of my day gig: “Meeting and getting to know drummers. Drummers in general are very interesting people.”

In my car CD player right now: The Beatles’ Love and T-Rex’s The Slider.

Staying sane: “I play with a classic rock and Motown band called Free Rain two to six nights a week. I’d go nuts if I never got to actually play.”

I can relate: “The last good movie I saw was American Gangster. I could relate to it -- not the illegal part, but the part where he saw a little niche and found a way to prosper.”

If I could tell my younger self one thing: “Don’t be afraid to make a mistake. I’ve made lots, but then they usually take me to a place I wasn’t expecting to go … so I would say dive in first every time.”

advertorial

A Conversation... Bernard Van Doren discusses the new Flow Packs and other issues. Michael Skinner: Bernard, it's always interesting to me to see how new ideas like the Flow Pack started. How did this come Bernard Van Doren about? Managing Director Bernard Van Doren: It actually started in the United States. I was on a dealer tour with you and noticed that in many of the stores the dealers were storing reeds in very unfriendly places where heat or the lack of humidity could damage the reed due to warping which will have an adverse affect on its performance. My concern was that the musician could receive reeds with our name on it that would not play like we wanted them to. I knew then I had to design a system that would help the dealers present a higher quality product to our musicians. The Flow Pack is the end result. MS: So what exactly does the Flow Pack do? BV: Cane is very sensitive to hygrometric changes and that is why our factory is regulated. The new packaging maintains the proper hygrometry of the reed during the transportation of the reed from our factory all the way to when the musician opens it. This is the first time this has truly been done. So now if the dealer is not exactly sure where to store his reeds, we can still insure that the reed the musician opens is factory fresh and at its optimum performance level. Remember, the Flow Pack is extra protection. Once opened, the reed will react to their hygrometric environment exactly as before. MS: What has been the response? BV: So far we have heard very positive comments from our musician friends like Jon Manasse, Claude Delangle and many more. The new packaging, of

course, is different to accommodate this innovation, but the more you use the new packaging, the more you will appreciate it. MS: Yes, the packaging is larger and looks very different. BV: Yes it does. It is because each reed is now packaged individually in the Flow Pack packaging. We needed to make the box to fit the Flow Packs. We understand the packaging is different, but we think it's worth it to insure that every time you open a Flow Pack you have a reed that is factory fresh. MS: I agree. I've heard from many musicians that the reeds are playing very well. Do you have any concerns regarding the packaging with regard to the environment? BV: This is an interesting question because we are very concerned with our environment. Let me give you a few examples: From the beginning – The cane used to manufacture reeds is a 100% natural plant. We use no fertilizer or pesticide during its growth and no chemical components during its transformation into reeds. Any leftover cane resulting from reed manufacturing is completely reused as either compost in our plantations or fuel for the boiler that heats our factory. Our high performance boiler, gives off only water vapor and CO2 into the atmosphere. It is important to note that this CO2 exhaust is of plant, not fossil origin and that its atmospheric evacuation contributes in no way to the greenhouse effect. Inside the new box – The reed protector is 100% recyclable and has the PP5 mark on the edge of the protector. The film we use to protect the reeds is very important. If we use any other type of packaging or method, the amount of waste is much more. It is a recoverable packaging (in the form of energy recovery as it has a high calorific ratio in incineration). The new box – the paper we use

From a recent interview by Michael Skinner, President, DANSR, inc.,the U.S. importer for Vandoren Products

comes from trees planted expressly for paper production and does not contribute to deforestation. Moreover, trees are systematically replanted in each section as they are felled. We have also replaced toxic inks, fixatives, developers and solvents, with others less polluting in nature (for example, the use of offset inks instead of habitual UV inks). Inside the factory – we use electric vehicles to move around our factory and finally I am happy to tell you that I drive a hybrid vehicle. MS: Wow! So it would seem to me that every step of the way, you not only found ways to protect the reeds, but to protect the environment. BV: Yes, it's true. MS: Are there any additional advantages to the new packaging? BV: Yes, in recent years we have seen the increase in counterfeit products that concern us very much. The level of sophistication required to create this packaging and product makes it difficult to copy. Again, our goal here is to create the best product so musicians can continue making the beautiful music for which we are so passionate. MS: Thank you Bernard!

Huge innovation in a new package. The new Vandoren Flow Pack packaging. Every reed we make is now wrapped in humidity balanced packaging resulting in reeds that are factory fresh. The most remarkable part of this innovation is you don’t have to do anything to benefit from it. No special storage, no little bags...nothing. Just put them in the store and watch your customers marvel at the consistency and quality you provide...at no extra cost. Now there’s a new point of purchase display availble! Contact your sales representative for details. It’s a huge innovation, but that’s what Vandoren is all about...one huge innovation after another.
