Hello and welcome to my Patreon page! :)

A few years ago, I came across an amazing electric rock violinist by the name of Mark Wood (he was one of the violinists and an original member of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.) I was playing one of his incredible instruments at an American String Teachers Association conference when he said to me, "I want to hear some music by YOU!" I was a bit puzzled at first because, at the time, I was strictly learning classical violin repertoire and wasn't quite sure what exactly to play. I've always been comfortable playing by ear and improvising, but I wasn't ready to create my own music.

After a lot of self discovery, I've learned that the time has come and I'm ready to share my music with the world and you! With that being said, being a creative musician takes a financial toll. Here is a list of expenses to get an idea:
  • Violin repairs and maintenance (strings, bow rehairs, etc.)
  • Transportation to gigs
  • Professional photographer
  • Sheet music
  • Equipment (cords, MacBook, midi keyboard, etc.)
  • and more
It doesn't seem much, but if you think about the time it takes to master an instrument like the violin, it's quite taxing. I'm sure you'd prefer me practicing violin four hours a day, instead of making frappuccinos for the same amount of time! ;)

With your help, you can help make my musical dreams a reality! Seriously, even a dollar helps tremendously.

I don't have a lot of content right now, however I'm hoping to change that soon. Your patronage can greatly improve the speed of that! :)

Thank you,

Michelle
