$70

per month


Are you a huge Disney and/or music theory nerd, with an insatiable thirst for knowledge and boundless curiosity?

Are you craving a deep understanding of Disney music -- not just the lyrics, but the actual music itself?

If so, my friend, you've come to the right place!


I'm so grateful that my free posts over at DisneyMusicTheory.com, my Facebook group, and my Twitter account have been so warmly received by so many people.

But what if you're so deeply curious about Disney music that my free blog isn't enough for you? What if you crave even more analyses - analyses that dive even farther into the music itself, drawing connections among songs and instrumental tracks throughout an entire soundtrack?



Sign up here for $5/month, and I'll give you exclusive access to my monthly analyses of THE ENTIRE SOUNDTRACK TO HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME!

Song by song, instrumental track by instrumental track, let's explore the nitty gritty details of formal structure, motivic development, chord progressions, melodic gestures, intertextuality, and more. Each of these exclusive posts will be open to discussion - so sign up today, and I can't wait to hear your ideas!



Still want more? I also offer subscriptions with additional perks, such as behind-the-scenes access to my research notes, top priority with blog requests, and discounts on private tutoring. See the tier descriptions for more details!


Hi, I'm Sam Zerin!



I'm a music theorist, historian, composer, pianist, and teacher based in Providence, Rhode Island. I've taught music theory at Brown University and New York University, and I'm so excited to bring my teaching online: with my blog, Twitter, Facebook, and now – thanks to you – here on Patreon. 

Thanks so much for your support. I look forward to exploring the magical world of Disney music together!

Goals
$70 of $100 per month
If we can reach $100/month, then I'll start creating my monthly Hunchback analyses in the form of videos, in addition to their usual text-and-image format.

I've gotten requests to do this, and honestly it's what I myself have been dreaming of doing. Imagine being able to hear the music *while* I'm talking about it... Imagine if I could draw your attention to specific notes or measures in the sheet music *at the same time* that I'm talking about them... it'd completely transform the learning experience!

But it takes a lot more time and energy. So that's why I'm asking for your help.

If you'd like to see these videos happen, then will you consider helping out with a monthly subscription? Every dollar counts! :-)
