HOW PATREON WORKS!
Unlike Kickstart, Patreon allows you to tip your favorite artists per content release as opposed to trying to raise a ton of money for one project.  This is great for YouTubers and viewers because we are trying to release consistent content typically on a bi-monthly basis.  The nice thing is that is completely in your hands as the viewer and each tip amount gives you access to amazing REWARDS that no other fans will get.  You can donate $1 per video or any amount of your choosing. I only release about two videos a month so that's only like $2 A MONTH!  You can also set a top out limit of how much you can donate per month so you won't go over budget.  Please check this out and read more!

WHY SHOULD I DONATE?
First of all, did I mention that you get awesome REWARDS! So you can be assured that no donation is for free, I will be working hard for those blessings!  The fact of the matter is musicians, artists, and all other creative individuals need help with their art.  We need feedback, constructive criticism, and assistance from our peers and those who consider themselves our true fans.  Being a modern day musician in itself, requires a large financial investment for many years.  In order to produce quality recordings and music videos to truly reach the mass of viewers, you need encouragement, financial support and flat out HELP!  I want to provide my listeners with the best possible sounding recording and the highest quality video that allows the viewer to truly see into my life as they watch me perform!

WHERE DOES MY MONEY GO?
 If you help me with even a small donation of $1 or any amount of your choosing towards every release, I guarantee every cent will be recycled back into my music.  I have a strict music pays for music policy.  In turn, this will help me further the quality of my content and invest in the technology it requires to successfully produce music in the modern world!  but Don't worry! Even if you cannot afford to help me financially, you can still support me by sharing my music videos and subscribing to my channels. Having fans listen to my music is payment enough and that is all I could ever dream of achieving.  I promise to continue making music regardless of any donations and I assure you, I will never stop!

Goals
$122 of $250 per Music video.
I don't expect those who don't use recording or video editing programs to understand, but these softwares require a lot of processing and certainly are not cheap.  With this benchmark hit, I can continue to invest in the latest updates and tools to better assist making the highest quality recordings and videos.
