About Bill Graham

Hi everyone, thanks for considering supporting me on Patreon.  For those of you who don't know me, my name is Bill Graham, and I'm a jazz pianist, composer, and educator.

Since the end of 2018, I have been putting up music education videos on my YouTube channel, BillGrahamMusic (https://www.youtube.com/c/billgrahammusic), focused primarily on jazz education, amassing over 8000 subscribers so far.  I'm going to continue making those videos, and also in 2021, I plan on releasing a large quantity of my original music.  In addition to my jazz instructional videos, I'd also like to expand my videos to cover other topics (both other topics in jazz, and other topics in theory, improvisation, composition, arranging, listening, and music in general)  

In order to post more consistently (I'd really like to be doing at least 1 or 2 videos every month, ideally 1 a week, rather than my current schedule of random, occasional uploads) I need to be able to spend less time on the work I have to do the keep the bills paid (freelance teaching, remote recording session work, and before the pandemic, freelance gigging.)  Unfortunately, in order to be able to turn down more of that work, I need to have some alternate revenue streams coming in to keep the lights on and keep food on the table.  I'd also like to be able to pay some of the fine musicians I have playing on my upcoming original releases what they're worth.
 
I truly appreciate everyone who has watched my videos and subscribed to my channel.  I don't want anyone to feel any pressure whatsoever to contribute, and if you don't have the extra money, please continue to check out and enjoy my content for free, but if you happen to have a few bucks to spare and you like what I do, a little bit of extra income would go a long way towards me being able to make and post content more consistently.

Thanks so much for your potential patronage,
Bill
