Hi guys! My name is Matt Lawton and I've been running a bass tuition website for the past five years.

My lessons are all transcription based and focus mainly on jazz but with a healthy helping of pop, rock and soul thrown in for good measure!

Why am I starting a Patreon?

Over the last few years producing the content for my website has become increasingly difficult as an average post (like this one) takes anywhere between 5 and 20 hours to put together. While this is great because I LOVE doing this, finding the time can be difficult when you're also a full time working musician!

When my schedule is filled with gigs, lecturing, instrumental tuition, composing and rehearsing my band Red Giant and juggling family life it is the website that suffers. The financial support from Patreon allows me to dedicate time to producing high quality content for the website.

Thank you!

For everyone who has contributed to my website past and present I want to say a HUGE THANK YOU! You're the people who help me further my own musical development and help fellow musicians learn along the way.

Just testing the waters... If I reach $50 a month I will be grateful forever and I will pledge to dedicate one day a week to creating content for the website.
