I am a musician.  I got a mountain dulcimer for my seventh birthday, and it has been my passion ever since.  I have dedicated my life to studying music and the mountain dulcimer.  

I am a community member.  I believe that I have a responsibility to do my part to make this world a better place.  I want to do what I can to make a positive difference in the lives of those who are hurting and broken.  

I have a dream to combine my passion for music with my passion for community outreach.  Research has shown that music is a powerful catalyst for good, healing, hope, and positive outcomes in our communities.  

My goal is to spend several hours a week doing music outreach in my community.  This is what that could look like: 

1- play at nursing homes, hospice centers, and hospitals, especially for individual patients who are struggling

2- give lessons to students who can't afford them

3- work with Legacy, an organization in Wichita that helps foster kids and inner-city boys through the arts

4- take music to cancer centers and chemo rooms.  

5- put on kids music camps in places where kids aren't being exposed to folk music

6- let's dream together!
 
You can help fund these programs with your support of my Patreon campaign.  I promise that every single dollar given will be used to fund these community outreach programs!  

So, what's in it for you?  

1- the warm, fuzzy feeling you get inside when you are a part of doing something to make this world a brighter place.

2- a digital download of "Honest: Songs of Hope"-- a CD recorded with hammered dulcimer player Joshua Messick about overcoming darkness. (you will receive the download information as soon as you make your monthly pledge)

3- receive photos, videos, and updates about what I'm doing each week. (comes with a monthly pledge of $5 or more)

4- get information about the curricula I develop.  This will include dulcimer tab, set list ideas, and song ideas for different settings.  (comes with a monthly pledge of $10 or more)

5- download all of my Concert Window workshops and performances in their entirety. I am currently offering one workshop (alternating diatonic dulcimer and chromatic dulcimer) and one concert per month." (comes with a monthly pledge of $15 or more)

5- quarterly handwritten updates from me and those I'm serving.  There's nothing better than good ol' fashioned mail, right?  (comes with a monthly pledge of $20 or more)

6- a monthly Q&A with me about the programs I am developing, and how you could do the same things in YOUR community. (format for this TBD)  (comes with a monthly pledge of $50 or more)

7- for $80 or more, get a 1-hour Skype lesson with me; and you'll pay for someone else to get a lesson too.  It's a buy one, give one deal!

When we reach this goal, I will find three new facilities to bring dulcimer into.  I will specifically target places that do not have regular live music programs in their centers.
