Hi, and thanks for checking out my Patreon page!!


Who am I, and what's this all about?

To keep it short and sweet - I'm a classically trained flutist and creative artist, constantly learning, constantly curious, and constantly striving toward finding meaning and purpose as a classically trained musician in the world today. That definition is ever-evolving, shaped not only by my own musical training, but by my studies of yoga, meditation, creativity.

It's also been shaped by many, many questions (and existential angst?) along the way. Questions such as: What is it, actually, to be a classically trained musician in the world today? Who am as that musician?  What's our place in society? How do we tell our own stories, discover and use our own voices?  And almost above all - how do we create lives that we love, lives that fulfill and sustain us as these creative musical artists?

And so, the  Classically Trained podcast was born! It's my quest to share and to discover the answers to those questions. To explore and expand what it means to be a classically trained musician in the world today. To reveal cracks and open windows in the boxes of tradition, expectation, and limiting beliefs that we find ourselves in so we can crawl out, fly away, or otherwise smash the boxes to pieces, and in so doing become the creative musical artists that we decide to be in pursuit of what makes our hearts sing. From the practical advice to the philosophical perspectives, from the entrepreneurial stories to the beliefs that shape us - that's what this is all about.

So how does this Patreon thing work?

Patreon is this amazing platform that gives you a way to join your favorite creator's community and pay them for making the stuff you love. Unlike Kickstarter where you pledge a larger, one-time amount for one specific project, on Patreon you pay a few bucks per month  for your creator's ongoing creation of things (podcasts, artwork, video essays, music, poetry, a mix of everything - whatever it is they do). This means the creator gets paid regularly and you become a bonafide, real-life patron of the arts. Kind of like in Mozart's day, but without the wigs. Imagine...your favorite creators making a living doing what they do best… because of you.

This sounds amazing! How do I become a patron?

All it takes is a $1 a month!

Just click the "Become a Patron" button above the Rewards section of this page, enter the amount you'd like to contribute per month, and that's it! Choose whatever amount feels good to you that fits your life and your budget, and don't worry - you can change it or cancel at any time. 

Rewards (?!)

As a huge thank you for becoming a patron, I've put together some rewards that I hope you'll enjoy! You can check out the details under the 'Rewards' section of this page.

What if I just want to support you but am not interested in the rewards or the community?

Totally fine! You can choose to participate as much or as little as you’d like. There’s also an option to opt out of the rewards if you’re just interested in supporting in the background.

Thank you!

If this speaks to you, if you believe in what my podcast (and I) are all about, then I'd be so excited to have you as a patron! And if it's not the right time or circumstance to for you to become a patron, I'm so thankful to you as a listener, sharer, and fellow musician (or musician-friendly person) who is coming along with me on this ride in your own way.

Lots of love, and happy listening!
