So what is Patreon, and why are we on it?
Patreon is a platform for nice people like you to support content creators like me. All PianoTV videos are, and will always be, free. But if you want to give back a little, now you can!
The editor and I create these videos for the love of music. However, we put tons of time and effort into releasing TWO VIDEOS A WEEK, something we've been doing for nearly two years. Your support is awesome!
You can head on over to the right sidebar to check out the reward options. So when you pledge us a certain amount of money each month, we will then pledge something back to you.
As for where your money will go, here’s a list of some of our recurring expenses:
- Adobe Premier (video editing)
- Bluehost (webpage hosting)
- Domain registration (small annual fee)
- Buffer (social media scheduling)
- Mailchimp (for the mailing list)
In addition to helping us cover costs, you can also help us do exciting things like upgrade our equipment.
For example, we currently rely on natural light for lighting, which can be unpredictable...especially when you live up north where winter daylight is short. Besides, how am I supposed to record videos when I'm inspired at 1am?
You can take a look at our goals over on the left sidebar. When we hit the first goal, enough to cover our monthly expenses and start saving for equipment, we'll share your generosity with my cat Tsunami, and put up a video of my adventure to find her the fanciest treats fit for a party.
And, when you contribute to our second goal by being among our earliest patrons, your kindness will be immortalized in a special Hall of Fame that I'll put up on the PianoTV website.
More than anything, we're so glad you're watching our videos and supporting them with your likes and comments. Thanks for stopping by!
