About

Hi Everyone, My name is Brett and I offer FREE weekly video lessons on YouTube for Mountain Dulcimer, Hammered Dulcimer, and Clawhammer Banjo. Along with these lessons, I share tips and ideas from emotional support and encouragement to helpful exercises to bring your playing and learning along and to hopefully motivate any musician of any instrument. I remember vividly the frustration and struggle when trying to learn to play and as a result have that same empathy for those on the same path. I truly love what I do and put great care and time into producing videos that are quality and thoughtful in content and NOT the "you get what you pay for" approach. And I am thankful to so many for the love, encouragement, and expressed thankfulness of these free lessons.I sincerely hope they are a blessing and encouragement to you.

So why am I on Patreon? Patreon is a place for you to show your support and appreciation for the art/music/creation. When beginning this journey, my goal to offer free lessons was in hopes of making this free to you and monetizing with YouTube to help cover expenses, but our community, in the big scheme of things is a very small community. In essence, my original plan of providing free lessons is for those YouTube creators receiving millions of hits. A fellow YouTube creator suggested I turn to Patreon and here I am. For a full-time musician, income is like a roller coaster, up and down and never able to get too comfortable;  it can be tough sometimes to keep income steady while taking the time to shoot, edit, and  produce new lessons every week, but this is where patreons who believe in what I am endeavoring, can make a difference- when they've signed up, pledged and have helped to support my work on a monthly basis.

My goal is to make this experience as personal as possible. If you would to learn more of what I do, talk to me privately, get questions answered in detail, receive personal help and live lessons, get free stickers, a personalized, "I Support Traditional Music" button, CDs, all offered at different support tiers. Thank you kindly for all your help and thank you for joining me on this learning for life journey!
