About Brian Krock

Welcome! My name is Brian Krock, and I'm a composer and multi-instrumentalist. You might be here because you watched one of my "SCORE STUDY" videos, or listened to some music by my 19-piece ensemble Big Heart Machine.  Maybe you just stumbled in, so let me tell you about why I'm asking for your patronage.

For ten years, I have been a professional, freelance musician in New York City.  My main goal has always been to be able to create imaginative original music (see: Big Heart Machine and liddle), and to support that goal, I've been able to support myself gigging, teaching, and doing behind-the-scenes work like sheet music engraving, production, transcription, arranging, etc.

Now, all of that has changed- for obvious (see: pandemic) reasons!  I'm using my newfound free time to create an educational series of video essays called "SCORE STUDY," in which I will teach you the skills you'll need to undertake an analysis of any piece of music you love- and learn WHY you love it in the process.

If you choose to support me here on Patreon, you will also unlock exclusive content that won't be available anywhere else.  You'll basically be my private student at a steep discount!  I'm going to share things like:
-unreleased tracks from my bands
-play-along mp3s and sheet music, so you can learn my music
-sketches of my in-progress commissions, so you can be a part of the process
-live Q&A sessions, so we can have a cup of coffee together while social distancing

...and, I'll always be brainstorming new ways to connect with you.  So, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading this far, and thus considering patronizing my musical and educational endeavors!  

65 of 100 patrons
I sort of can't believe we made it to 50 patrons! The community is growing, and you've become the backbone of my creative career. So... now, let's shoot for 100 patrons. If we get there, I will start doing live stream hangs- exclusively for the Patreon crew- where we can listen to and talk about music, ask each other questions, and generally have a good time.
