Hello everyone and welcome to my Patreon site! My name is Justin Woods and I hope that I can share my hopes and dreams with all those who take part in my music and art!

Let me give you a bit of my background!
I came from the deserts of Palm Springs with big dreams of writing music and being a part of the video game industry. I received my degree in music from the Claremont Colleges with a focus on composition. I studied music theory and composition as well as piano and classical/flamenco guitar. Post graduation, I became a music teacher at a charter school in Los Angeles. You can actually see a few examples of my students' work on my youtube page! After spending three years in Japan, I'm back in Los Angeles and taking my music career head-on!

Now, for my goals!
The big one: I want to become a composer for the video game industry. It has been a dream of mine to be able to contribute to such an evolving art form. I want to use my education and passion to create music that will hold a place in the hearts of players for years to come.

What do I do?
I currently write original (usually orchestral) music in order to fill my portfolio with impressionable examples of my musical style. I also love to make video game arrangements for guitar and display them on my YouTube page. If you are a fan of older video games, you may find some of your favorite tunes on my channel!

Why support the Woods?
Besides being a tangible supporter of my artistic growth, becoming a supporter would help give me a leg up on producing quality content. The financial backing will allow for higher quality equipment, programs and faster rates of production.

Better microphones = better sound.
Better editing software = more interesting videos!

Seeing the names of those who truly love my music enough to become a supporter will make my heart swell with excitement and fuel my drive to constantly create art! I want to make you a part of the process and feel like you, too, are creating music with me!

What do I have to offer?
Being quite new to Patreon, I am unsure of the type of feedback that supporters would like. I can send personalized audio files, take special requests, commissions, or anything else I can think of! I can also offer insight to my compositional process and the progress of each of my works. Feel free to help me out by letting me know what you would like to receive in return for supporting my musical production!

Getting to the big spenders! Every time I complete a video, you will get a copy of the audio sent straight to your email! In the email, I will also include a PDF file of the sheet music (if it is an original composition)!  I will do a monthly Google Hangout session with all of the patrons at this level. We can talk about music, games, composing, anything you'd like! Also, this would be the most opportune time to place your requests for my next work since we can discuss ideas.

Along with receiving everything at the earlier levels, patrons at this tier will get one-on-one video time via Skype every month! You can use this time to talk about anything you'd like. You could even use this time to have your own private music lesson (Guitar, composing, theory, or even piano!). This is the level in which you become a much more impactful supporter, so I would like to show my appreciation in the best way I can!
Goals
$9 of $1,000 per month
My macbook is struggling to hold up to the weight of all my recording and editing, so I'm looking to save up for a new MacBook that can handle the workload of a composer/arranger!
