Hi. My name is Jorge, and I'm studying Jazz Piano Performance in College.
I'm on Patreon because I believe in 2 fundamental values.
Serving my community, and being a contributor to it's growth.
I don't have a million dollar label backing me up, and I never will.
My goal is to make music not to control it.
And that's where you come in.
In order for me to be able to make music full time, I need your financial support.
And what do you get for contributing you ask?
Music.
See I don't believe in the old model of charging an arm and a leg and extorting every cent out of every person I come across.
I believe that music should be free.
Free to use in your videos.
Free to use in your workshops.
Free to use in your school projects, without having to go through a complicated and ancient licensing process, in which everyone tries to extort as much money from you as possible--from the agencies claiming they work for you, to the lawyer of the label that owns the recording of the artist you want to license.
But in order to give you all that freedom, I need your help.
By contributing to my Patreon, you're making sure that I have the financial resources I need so I can pay my bills, and support myself.
You're giving me the freedom to dedicate all my time to music, studying it, composing it, and performing it, while avoiding the extortion of the music industry.
And it's a win-win really.
You won't have to pay for your music, or licensing, or anything of the sort, and I won't have to bother with lawyers, labels, contracts, and people constantly trying to screw either of us over.
Sounds good doesn't it?
I don't get screwed over, and you don't get screwed over either, but I get to do what I love and you get to enjoy the result.
Sounds fair?
Please join me below and let's enjoy the music together.

Do you love music? Are you the kind of person to rush out and buy the latest album by your favorite artists and not just stream them for free? Then this is for you.

This level of contribution will get you free access to every single commercial release I make, with the exception of guest appearances and the like where I appear on other's work.

Plus you get everything from the Intro and Starter level too, how awesome is that?


Live for Live Music
$15 or more per month 0 patrons
So, you prefer live music over recorded one?

Well, this is the level for you.

With this level of contribution you get early-bird access to all my ticket sales.

You'll get access to purchase show tickets 1 to 2 days in advance of the general public, or maybe even VIPs, if you're lucky.

Plus, you get everything that has already been listed in the other levels as well.

CD Crazy
$25 or more per month 0 patrons
So, you just have to have that CD right?

It's not that you don't like digital--you buy them all the time too but it's just there's something special about holding that CD in your hand, reading the paper, putting it in it's case and organizing them right?

This is the level for you.

Remember that all access pass to my recordings I mentioned earlier?

Well, this is basically the same thing, but with CDs.

So you get all my commercial recordings as they become available, delivered right to your home, in CD form.

And yes, you still get access to the digital downloads, as well as all the other goodies I listed in previous levels.

Vinyl Rules
$40 or more per month 0 patrons
Okay, so you want vinyl--you prefer LPs, and all that. Right?

You got it.

A vinyl of every commercial recording, right to your home, from the moment you join until I stop making music.

You also get a CD version, along with everything else listed on all the other levels.

VIP Club
$60 or more per month 0 patrons
Are you the type of person who always wanted to meet your favorite artists but never had the money to pay the $200 or even $250 ticket?

Well, here's the level you've been waiting for.

You get all the goodies from the previous levels, plus a VIP greet and meet, plus a breakdown of what you're about to see in the show that night, the history behind the piece, if I'm playing someone else's work, why I chose the pieces I did for that performance, if it's an original composition the story behind that, etc.

All that is yours plus everything from the other levels, absolutely everything.

Music Madness
$100 or more per month 0 patrons
Wo, it's time to take out all the stops!

At this level you get:

everything in the previous levels plus:

-an autographed album at sign up,

a monthly google hangout with me in which you can ask any question about my music, composition, how I compose, music theory etc.

If I can answer it I will if I can't I'll research it and answer it on the next month.

You'll also get n exclusive stream to a select group of jam sessions, videos of all my performances in the highest resolution formats, streams so that you can enjoy my shows if you can't be there in person,

free tickets--not early bird sales but free!!!

And if you're a musician, you'll be able to audition to join me on stage when I'm in your city, either to open or as part of a jam session.

Goals
$0 of $500 per month
Buy my own keyboard. At this point I'm depending on practice rooms at the college that have a Piano, and buying my own keyboard would allow me to practice at home, and also be able to perform anywhere.
