Ricky is creating Music

Hey, it's me Ricky
I make inspirational music like these: Inspirational Arrangements by Ricky Valadez.  Thank you for checking out this page. Just the fact that you're here tells me that you've thought about the time and effort that goes into work I do, and that it matters to you. So thank you.
 
Why? After the first London performance of Handel's Messiah, one of the patrons congratulated Handel on the excellent 'entertainment' to which Handel responded, “I should be sorry if I only entertained them, I wish to make them better.”

Handel must have known that music has a power to impact us so deeply that it can change us.

Here's a example from my life:
One morning my older brother was trying to wake me up to go outside and play. He was shaking me and shouting, but NOTHING was working. I felt so groggy and tired that even though I wanted to wake up it seemed I didn't have the power to do it.

Then he turned on some music and I started to feel as if an energy was waking up inside of me. Suddenly I wanted to run, climb, and conquer the day.

I believe that we all have untapped greatness within, just waiting to be woken up. I believe that music can awaken within us the hope, motivation, compassion, and goodness that is already within. You and I both know that the world needs more of that.
That is my goal. To create music that inspires and uplifts.

How? I've been writing music for commercials, films, promo videos, etc for several years. Yet, I feel that my talents can be used for a greater purpose than that.

Rather than write music to sell a product, I want to write music to inspire people.

Creating professional quality music takes A LOT of time. With your support, I can spend less time writing commercial music and more time writing the music that you and I want.

Traditionally patrons, producers, or record labels not only financially invest in an artist/song, but they also invest creatively as well, because they're truly interested in its success. My upper level patrons actually join with my creative teams where we work together to inspire the world.

  • Visionaries Team
  • Audiophiles Team
  • Scouts Team
  • Dreamers Team

If you're not ready to join any of the teams now, that's okay. You can still contribute by signing up as a $10, $5, or even $1 patron.

I can't thank you enough for your financial support, and your interest in joining with me to fill the world with inspiring music.

Sincerely,
Ricky Valadez
