Why Patreon?

Welcome to my Patreon Page!  

I am inviting you to become a Patron to support my work to accomplish the goals listed below.

As a poet, a singer of traditional songs, a creator of new ones, and an arranger of tunes for ensembles of dulcimers, I look forward to the chance to give you, my supporter, first access to these new creations.

As I compose and record new songs, create dulcimer orchestra arrangements and arrange classical and jazz tunes for mountain dulcimer, I am eager to share them all with you!

How does it work?
You agree to pledge an amount (as little as $5) per month to support the work I mentioned above. Patreon collects these funds and processes them at the beginning of each month. You can stop or start your patronage whenever you wish.

There are different rewards for each level of patronage, and as different Milestone Goals are reached there are more benefits for all patrons, regardless of your sponsorship level.
You can start and stop, or edit your pledge at anytime.

Payment is processed by Patreon at the beginning of each month.

What Are My Goals?

1.  Creating New Music.
As a self-booking performing musician, my daily challenge is balancing the teeter-totter familiar to many artists: The business side of our career with creating new work. Your support can help me tip the teeter-totter toward the creation side!  I will be working on projects in the following areas:

A. Music to support Healing and Relaxation.  
Some years ago I was commissioned to write a soundtrack for a relaxation video Serenade to the Canada Goose.  
Recently I was able to create an hour-long hammered dulcimer reflection (Half Moon Bay) to support practitioners of massage and Reiki.  
Between the Tracks is a brand new patron-supported CD of instrumental guitar solos that continue exploring this side of my composing soul. 

Patrons have first access to this healing resource.
B. New songs.
As a songwriter, I am composing and wrestling with words to express my gratitude for all the beauty in the world, even as I bear painful witness to its sometime absence.  

As these are composed and recorded in both audio and video formats, these will be shared with you first!  

I include archives of past work as part of my Patreon feed as a special benefit for my patrons.

C. New Dulcimer Orchestra Arrangements.  
The Dulcimer Orchestra Library gathers, commissions and provides accessible arrangements of classical music for dulcimer ensembles.

I have produced a reliable and accessible collection of creative dulcimer arrangements that will inspire people of all abilities to form dulcimer ensembles, bridging gaps to create shared musical experiences and equip each participant to grow and live fully as creative individuals.
PROCESS:   
Each arrangement needs to be formatted for hardcopy and digital production, with a conductor's score, musical notation and mountain dulcimer tablature.  
Each part is then recorded and mixed for the entire ensemble, then again with each part louder, but still in the context of the ensemble and finally with each part absent, karaoke-style, so that the player can practice on his or her own.  
Then the arrangement is taught to an orchestra and performed and the work is documented with video.   The entire process takes over 34 hours of work per arrangement.

There are currently 30 pieces available for performance, with several more close to completion.

Thanks to your Patron Support 26 of these are available as downloadable products!

Your level of support can give you access to these completed arrangements, as do meeting the Milestone Goals.
 

If you wish to request an arrangement, you can do that by choosing that level of support.

2.  Creating a Digital Archive of my Current Work.
My 18 recorded CDs are all available in a digital format, but only eight of my 13 published books is available this way.  Each book takes about 25-30 hours to complete.

I will create them and make them available to you first! 
If you have one that you want to request first, you can make that request on my Patreon Page.


3.  Sharing the Music
.  
I have made New Songbooks for each of these recordings:  Holy MountainSoaring and am planning a piece of it all.  
Some of these songs already exist in a published Lead Sheet format, but many do not. In addition, I will create dulcimer tablature for the pieces that do not already have them.  
These will be produced in both digital and hard copy format and made available to you first!



4. Helping Others Share the Music
.
I will continue to create lessons and resources to help other people share the music of their soul.
