Hello, world

  I have been given this gift and love for music, and i've chosen to do the most important thing I can possibly think of with it, and that's to create ska covers of various songs.  

  This entire journey began on christmas of 2016, when I jokingly posted on facebook saying I should make a bad ska cover of a christmas song, and everyone encouraged me to actually do it, so I did it and people loved it, so since then I've been using my resourses to record myself playing guitar, bass, trumpet, trombone, saxophone, keyboard, and sometimes unconventional instruments like viola, ukulele, euphonium, and honestly anything I can get my hands on to create covers of songs I find interesting or songs other people tell me I should do! 

  For years now I have performed with several different groups, from large organizations like the Bluecoats Drum and Bugle Corps, to not so large bands like We are the Union. I've shared the stage with dozens of different bands, and I can honestly say I love performing for people and entertaining people, and that's exactly what I do with my youtube channel. 

  Finding the time to create these videos isn't always easy, however. Working multiple jobs and being a full time student takes up a lot of my time, so at this point it's more of just a hobby, rather than something I can truly commit to, but this Patreon could completely change that. 

  Patreon allows artists and musicians like myself to sustain themselves off their art by having supporters like you pledge to donate however amount you want. Think of it like a tip jar if I was out on the street performing this music live, except on Patreon there are cool rewards you can get back depending on how much you choose to donate for every time I upload. I plan on uploading one cover every 2 weeks come 2018 (because that's all I have time for), but I shouldn't upload anymore than 4 times a month.

  I have lots of plans I want to do with this channel beyond just ska covers. I wanna make actual videos that consist more of just me playing in front of a camera, I have skit ideas for punk (and non punk) related comedies, I have ideas for making merchandise, ideas for arranging songs for marching bands, ideas for composing and covering music in different genres aside from ska. All these ideas take time, however and as of now all my time is going into work.

  It would be greatly appreciated if you choose to support this. Maintenance on 7 instruments as well as recording equipment isn't cheap, and I have been trying to upgrade all of my equipment so the product you all hear can always be as great as possible, but it's really hard when you're a student living on your own paying bills.  

  But remember ya'll, you don't have to pledge to support my channel. The fact that you're checking out my videos is support enough and times are tough! I understand that! Thank you so much for checking out my Patreon, though.

Goals
$917 of $1,000 per month
Wooo! After i reach the 750 goal, the 1000 goal is the next milestone, but what can I do with this amount? 

S P O T I F Y (and other streaming platforms). It's not easy getting music onto streaming platforms when it comes to covers. It'll be a lengthy and expensive process that is just completely out of the question, BUT it's a goal I want to get to. At the moment, it's something I can't afford, but for sure I want to! 
With uploading my songs to spotify, i plan on also sending out my music to get mixed and mastered (only the best quality), and even re-recording some of my older covers before doing so! 

On top of that, this goal amount will ensure that I can eat, pay rent, and survive, as you know, running skatune network takes up as much time (if not more) as a full time job, and this will equate me to working full time at minimum wage!
