2

patrons

$9
per videos of me teaching and playing acoustic music.
I use you tube, facebook, skype, and my website to share accurate and often personalized music instruction, as well as performances  I perform with a sextet string band by the name of, "Sailing To Denver."  Our goal with our original music is to create meaningful and a unique music that is enjoyable to a wide variety of listeners. For more information about my band, as well as free listening, follow the link below.

This Patreon page will be focused more on my individual performance and instruction.  Let me state, "I did not get into music for the money."  I am sure other musicians and artists on this site understand where I am coming from.  It brings to mind a quote from one of my favorite authors.

“If you want to really hurt you parents, and you don't have the nerve to be gay, the least you can do is go into the arts."

Kurt Vonnegut


My goal in joining Patreon is not to accumulate wealth.  My goal is It is to support other independent artists, as well as my own art in the process.  Keep in mind all of my material is available for free else-where on the web.  That way I can feel as if Patron's are doing so as a sign of good faith and encouragement, not simply to get some material I have created but am with-holding. 

I will be offering one on one skype lessons, (guitar and mandolin) as well sheet music as rewards.  I am planning on using my "rewards," function through this site as a fair way to monetize those services.  For people interested in sheet music I do suggest you download tabledit, it is free.  I can provide it in other formats, but I find it most effective in tabledit format. One reason being the viewer can listen to the midi while viewing.  Oh yeah, and it's free!

For more information about my personal musical ruminations, check out the link below.

Music is not the only topic of conversation in my life, or in my blog.  I love literature, culture, philosophy, conversation, and the exchanging of ideas.  With a little support I hope to increase the amount of quality free information I can accumulate and share with others.
Rewards
Pledge $20 or more per videos of me teaching and playing acoustic music.

For twenty dollars, any patron with a web cam and a skype account can have a 45 minute personal lesson via the web.  I will include sheet music.  Also, I have been known to go over the 45 min mark.  I urge that only guitar and mandolin players with intermediate ability seek this reward.  I have found they get the most bang for their buck.
Goals
$3 – reached! per videos of me teaching and playing acoustic music.
I would like to provide sheet music, (tab), for my compositions and videos currently available.  As well as transcribe the works of my favorite players to share on the web.  This is time consuming.
