Hello, music lovers!
I've been performing music for 20 years, singing or playing various instruments. I've joined Patreon so that people who would like to support me can do so, and get some nice rewards too! Livestreaming concerts means you don't have to be in the same place as me, and as they're recorded you don't even have to watch at the same time.
I've been living in London for three years, two of those spent studying at the Royal College of Music. Before that I studied in Birmingham Conservatoire, and before that, I lived in Edinburgh. I want my music to reach as many people as possible, but especially those who perhaps haven't been interested in classical music before. I do this by talking about the music, which helps guide listeners through what might otherwise seem just a pretty wash of notes.

Your support will mean I'm less reliant on the variable nature of freelance work, and more able to produce regular videos. I'll also be able to upgrade my equipment to make sure your viewing experience is the best possible.

May music fill your soul!

Much love,
Duncan

Also, any non-live videos will be posted here a day before everyone else gets it.

Join me for  an exclusive pre-concert talk, where I'll discuss some aspect of the music - maybe its historical context, or the style it's written in. 

Or, if there's another performer with me, we'll have a conversation about stuff. 

Plus, submit your questions in advance and I'll select some to answer!

Wow, you're incredible! To thank you for your generosity, I'll give you a mention during the concert (and in the credits too). 

Also, if you're in London, or are willing to travel, you are welcome to come to the concerts! (You'll need to give me a week's notice)

 Every 4 months you're a patron, you'll get a private, 1.5-hour live recital for you and your friends and family. Invite everyone round, open a bottle, project me onto a wall! (Time of concert can be arranged to suit you and me, within 1 month of 4-month term completion)

Moving out
If we ever reach this mindblowing target, I'll rent a studio where I'll be able to have a grand piano and keep my equipment set up. This would be seriously awesome!
