I'm a children's musician who was working as an accountant. I took the chance that "work restructuring" provided to try and make a go of playing music full time a few years ago. Thanks to support from family, friends and fans, I'm getting there! I want my two kids to see their Dad working in a job he believes in. And I love playing music! (Especially music for kids).

I'll be using your support to help make videos of my kid's music songs and stories, including footage from live performances in schools, at concerts, in the studio and at other places, as well as illustration and animation. In the meantime I'll keep playing shows and running workshops-at schools, libraries and events-and teaching music, while writing theses songs and stories and recording more children's music CDs.

Supporters can expect free tickets to events, live shows and music lessons for their kids via Skype, and bonus MP3s of both live recordings and from upcoming albums.

Access to my Patreon Stream! It sounds like some wacky sci-fi thing, and I just might make it so (eh? eh?!) We can chat about music and kids and the interactions thereof, all together!

All gig announcements will be made here first (as well as on my blog and facebook, because hey, kids music shouldn't be TOO exclusive now, should it?)

It's access to my inner thoughts as represented by the Patreon Stream but for a slightly higher price!

This is me thinking about busking and how people normally throw in a dollar or two without really thinking about the difference. :-)

I'll send you a a copy of the audio track of a featured song or story to keep or burn to disk (in .wav or .acc or .mp3 format - your call) you your kids to listen to away from the 'puter as need be.
You also get access to my Patreon Stream. Maybe it will transport you through time, I don't know for sure.

As well as a copy of the audio file, as above, I'll also email you a PDF of the lyrics and standard notion of the melody line and chords of a featured piece each month. You'll get access to my Patreon Stream too, of course! 
The VIP
$50 or more per month 0 of 60 patrons
As well as all the above (the sound file of the song or story, pdf of the words and music and access to my Patreon Stream!) I'll also make a video call to you and your kids (can be mobile in Aus of Skype anywhere) to introduce the new vid or just have a little chat.

The Music-Man talking to your kids through the computer! My goodness, technology today!

The full online package: the music or story file; a pdf of lyrics and music or the story; and a Skype call...but this time the call can be a full 30 minute MUSIC LESSON for your budding Music-Girl-or-Boy-or-Children!!

That'll be something to talk about in the stream!

I will write and record a song for you about whatever you want! (once a month, if you keep this level of patronage going).

Plus, you get all the other stuff!

You're an inspiration! Literally!

(Note: commissions purchased under this Patreon tier are for non-commercial use only, with all copyright retained by me. If you'd like a song for advertising, soundtrack or other business purposes please send me a message!)
Goals
$1 of $200 per month
If I earn this much from patreon per month I'll be able to edit my live footage with other material and make more visually engaging film clips for these original songs, helping me to better bring the energy of my live performances into homes and classrooms!
