is creating Restoring & donating old pianos

patrons

per month
I create music for opera, choir, orchestra, piano, film, etc. But my most gratifying projects have involved giving back to the community.  Since 2014, I began to collect and restore pianos and then donate them to schools in lower income areas. 

I've successfully found homes for close to 20 pianos with the use of personal funds.  I have a passion for this work and now I'm looking for help from the community. 

With your patronage, I'll be using your support to expand this piano project.  Simple things like renting a truck (my friends can only lend me their trucks so much), hiring movers (note: most movers are my friends but it'd be nice to give them a nominal token or even cover the cost I pay for a meal for them), tuning the pianos (tuners are expensive!  $100+/hr), etc. 

Thank you for your contributions.  They mean the world to me and to many other kids that will hopefully go on to prosperous artistic careers!

Here are some links to show some of the coverage I received for my donations:

Decision maker
$50 or more per month
In addition to having the piano engraved with your name, you get to decide where the pianos goes.  You can either choose a school or community center of your choice or we can give you a short list of options we are considering.  
Goals
$0 of $100 per month
Once I hit $100 I can use this towards picking up a piano and delivering it.  This will cover my costs for a truck rent or borrow as well as paying nominal fees to at least 2 other helpers for their time.
