About Grant Olson

I absolutely love music and the dulcimer specifically. I have been playing the dulcimer since I was ten years old. I have learned a lot since then, my most recent accomplishment being winning the 2019 National Mountain Dulcimer Competition in Winfield, Kansas. 

My goal with this Patreon page is to make it worth my while to pursue music even more as I head into college and a busier life. Some of the funds will need to go towards general expenses, but I also have plans for other projects. These include:
-Buying a nice fully chromatic Blue Lion dulcimer (I have already done this - thank you patrons!)
-Building experimental dulcimers and other instruments
-Recording a CD
-Writing an advanced book of classical songs arranged for chromatic dulcimer

If you are excited about what I am doing with the dulcimer and want to see me continue, you should consider supporting me on Patreon. Through the patron-only feed, (available to every level of support), I will give updates on the projects I am working on. All patrons will also get 10% off all items in my online store. In addition, there are other benefits available:

-A bi-weekly video of improvisation or composition- I am very passionate about composing new music. I improvise almost every day, and I write lots of tunes as well. I would not consider every one a masterpiece, but anything is worth capturing. In the weekly video, I will show you the latest song I'm working on and/or do some improvising. 

-Tablature- I will offer two arrangements per month. The first will be an intermediate/advanced level, for a standard 3-string dulcimer with minimal extra frets. The second will be an advanced arrangement. There are different ways I could approach this level, and as patrons commit to this level I will seek input for what you all are interested in. I can do arrangements for a regular 3 string dulcimer, and focus on more difficult songs and techniques. I can also arrange for chromatic dulcimer, and possibly four or five string dulcimers. 

-A tune for you! For any patron who supports me at $30 per month, I will compose a tune for you! You will be free to download the tab and MP3, and share with friends and family if you choose.

If you have any questions, or anything in this description is confusing, please reach out to me! Also check out my website: www.grantolsondulcimer.com
Goals
10 of 20 patrons
When I reach 20 patrons, each patron will receive an mp3 of the first cd I ever recorded! Beginning in 2014, I have made a cd every Christmas for family and friends. When I made this first cd, I was 12 years old and had been playing the dulcimer for about a year and a half. It was fun for me to listen to it again, and I hope future patrons will enjoy it as well! If you are a current  patron and know someone who might be interested in the music I am making, feel free to share my YouTube videos or Patreon page.
