The purpose of life is to give it away"
I am blessed with a lot of support from the people around me and I enjoy looking for find ways to pay it forward. No matter what sort of financial backing I have on this site I will always travel, teach, share, write, and play music in every corner of the world that I can.
I have a number of goals and projects that I would like to explore (see the left hand column), having financial support from my friends and fans will make them come to life.
I want to start a platform to share my songs - new songs, old/recycled songs, jam sessions, classical performances, and live recordings made around the world.
I want to contribute to the world of musical education as much as I can. I already spend a sizeable amount of my time teaching and one of my first projects is to make music education videos to put online, free and accessible to anyone and everyone.
I aspire to be a composer, which to me is someone who writes their music down. Right now when I write songs, they stay in my head or amount to a few scribbles and some lyrics on a page. If I can make time to write my songs down, perhaps others will play them and pass them along...?
My purpose on this earth is to learn, write, and share music. One of these days I will record my fifth album, and when I do, I want to create something really special. For that reason I want to have the financial freedom to take time and capture the essence of a live performance, to use very little editing to piece each track together. I want to be able to compensate all participants generously and record in acoustically beautiful spaces to produce an album that is natural and authentic.
