Bonus Rewards for Accumulated Contributions
Accumulate $50 of pledges to have a 1 hour music lesson.
Want a music lesson? I teach bass, theory, composition, and music history. I love sharing knowledge and for this reasonable rate I will pack in as much knowledge as i can in an hour. If you're in Toronto we'll meet in person, otherwise Google hangouts or Skype are great ways to learn about music.
One hour lesson on a music topic of your choice from my areas of expertise.
Accumulate $400 of pledges to have your own song composed and recorded.
Have you ever wanted a jazz song written about anything? Literally anything. Past patrons have had songs writen for loved ones, they've had ballads about unicorns penned, there's been soul searching journies into a troubled past.
Once your pledges have reached $400 I will write, perform, and record with my trio, a jazz tune on a topic of your choice. You will receive a digital copy of the recording and a PDF of the sheet music, as well as a paper part copied in my own hand, complete with a personal dedication.
The song can include lyrics on your request. Feel free to indicate a perfered style or instrumentation.
