  About Me  

What up! My name is Aaron Washington. I'm a husband, freelance musician/educator in Chicago and the creator of The Black Trumpeter YouTube Channel. Since September of 2016, I've been creating videos (and other practice materials) to help end the #TrumpetStruggle.

I want to continue to encourage more people to either, continue playing trumpet or pick it up for the first time, with as much ease and guidance as possible.

  What is Patreon and Why am I on it?  

Patreon is a crowdfunding platform where fans can financially support a recurring pledge (big or small) to their favorite creators. I'm on this platform because I want to provide an online group lessons service for trumpeters that want more help and guidance from me.

Don't worry! My YouTube trumpet tutorials will always be free. 

If you choose to become a member, then you'll have a learning experience that goes deeper than watching a video. You'll be able to participate in the learning, like a classroom. Through this platform, I'll be able to cater to this community by having an open line of communication where they tell me exactly what they want in lessons and an overall experience.

  Where Does Your Money Go? 

Your support will make it possible for me to invest in making free YouTube videos for the community of trumpeters who want to improve their abilities. This means buying better equipment to produce higher quality videos and (one day) hiring an editor so I can produce more content that you love and want to support.

Creating these videos take tons of time and resources, both of which require money. So, your support will make it possible for me to focus more time on making great lessons and less time worrying about the financial aspect. Along with performing music for a living, I would love to create online lessons and courses for you as my full-time career.

Speaking of online courses...

Your support will also help me build my own membership website that will host online courses that I create. This will give trumpeters like you a chance to learn and advance your skills at your own pace.
