Hi. My name is David Bruce. I'm a composer and have been lucky enough to have performances in some great venues around the world, from Carnegie Hall in New York, to London's Royal Opera House. I started a YouTube channel to share my experiences, passions and knowledge as a composer. 
The videos cover a range of music-related topics, philosophical, technical and historical, but always aimed at being stimulating, entertaining and thought-provoking. My aim is that they should be interesting not just to composers, but to anyone who's just really into music, whatever the genre. Previous videos include  How the Way you talk affects the music you writeIrrational Time Signatures and RhythmsWhy there is no Saxophone in the Orchestra or Composing With One Note .

Your support on Patreon will not only help secure the time and resources to create these videos, but also projects like converting an Electronic piece for Orchestra and the 5 Composer challenges - these are time-consuming and expensive to put on, but something I absolutely love doing. With your support, I hope to do many more!

Thank you so much!

P.S. In case you were wondering, the reward level names come from some of my most frequently performed pieces! 
P.P.S.  Patreon always bills on the 1st of every month, so if you join towards the end of a month, you will be immediately charged, but then you may get another bill soon after. If this will bother you, please wait for the start of the new month to join! Thank you again!
