About


Welcome to my Patreon page. I'm a National Champion musician hammered dulcimer player, performer, and teacher. I produce albums, Mp3's, music videos, workshops, and sheet music.  I started my musical endeavors at the age of 15 when I took it upon myself to build my first instrument from a water damaged piano. Since then this "itch" has developed into a passion. My wife and I recently decided to make a full time living as an independent artist. With your involvement this dream is becoming a reality! 
Thank you -so- much for stopping by! Take a look around and discover the amazing sound of the hammered dulcimer. Here are some examples of my work:


Patreon is a platform by which the artist (me) and you (the patron) conglomerate to produce something that otherwise may not be possible . Think of yourself as a investor in my talents. If you invest in me (becoming a patron), I return the favor by investing in you (rewards). But it's not a business deal; it's a personal connection and relationship with the artist. You don't need deep pockets to be an investor. Whether you commit $1 or $50 you can make a big difference in my family's life and I will work my very hardest to return the favor by producing quality material. The more patrons we can get to join our group the more time and resources will be available to me to better serve you and the world with my talents. 


Every dollar funded to my artistry goes to providing me the ability to produce music and video for you. Whether it is to invest in new equipment such as microphones and cameras, or to keep food on the table and a roof over my head, every dollar that is pledged will make a big difference in my pursuit of getting my music outside of my studio.
Keep in mind that if you decide to support my work you are never obligated to be a patron indefinitely. If you need to budget yourself to a lower amount or just need to opt out entirely you can do so at any time. I would understand and we will still be friends.


This page isn't here for just a charity fund, it's here for you -my fans!  Every Patreon level found to the right contains a whole bunch of goodies and benefits for you guys. Check them out and find out what best fits you.


The hammered dulcimer is a unique and awesome instrument with ancient roots going as far back as the Babylonian empire. It combines the full melodic sound of the piano with percussive techniques which provides a delightful and captivating sound. This trapezoidal instrument has a plethora of strings strung across its face which are struck with two wooden mallets held in either hand. The action is much the same as the automated movement that takes place inside of a piano when the keys are played. Believe it or not, the hammered dulcimer is the forerunner of the modern piano. Really though, isn't a piano just a hammered dulcimer in a coffin?
Goals

 Reaching this goal will help me get my music venture up and running, provide the necessary finances for better video and audio production, and of course, put food on our table and a roof over our heads. 
 Accomplishing this goal will also help cover the cost of producing my next album "So Sings My Strings". I'm currently working very hard on releasing it as soon as I can. Will you help me reach my goal?
