Greetings Producers | Mixers | Recording Artists!

Dr. Ford here – your music and audio educator – welcoming you to 2019 and my brand new Patreon page!

When you support us through Patreon, you’re not only supporting the creation of education and entertainment content (which will be longer and more in-depth moving forward), but you’ll also be supporting ALL of the content Dr. Ford creates, exposure for the Artists we work with, and the success of the "Nashville Unsung" Podcast.

That means:

Production and Mixing instructional Videos
Blogs
Unboxing Videos
Podcasts
Masterclass Events
and more...

Here are the basics:

First things first, what is Patreon?

Unlike a Kickstarter (where you donate a one-time amount of money to one big project), Patreon is an ongoing way to support content creators. It's easy to sign up. You just pick a donation level- $2, $5, $10, etc, to be charged once a month. You can buy Dr. Ford a vanilla latte, or help fund new equipment, and anything in between.

How does this monthly pledge model work?
With our new monthly model, you get charged the same amount every month, no matter how much content we create.

If you choose to pledge $5, you only ever get charged $5 each month.

(You can also pledge custom amounts! $8, $12, $32, the choice is yours.)


Here’s a cheat sheet on how to Pledge:

Step 1: Hover on your profile icon in the upper righthand corner in Patreon. From the drop-down menu that appears, click your memberships and you'll see a list of all your active memberships.

Step 2: Click edit next to the membership you'd like to update.

Step 3: You’ll be taken to the confirmation page where you’ll see the details of your current tier. To edit your tier level, click the orange edit link to the right of “your tier.”

Step 4: Select the new tier level that you’d like to pledge to. Click the orange continue button.

Step 5: Once you click continue you’ll be taken to the confirmation page once more. Select update pledge.

Note: Read the details of your pledge in the upper right box, including; payment method, $ amount of pledge and billing details. If you are happy with your changes, click update pledge. Your new pledge amount will immediately take effect for any future content the creator shares with you.

For more details on how to edit your pledge amount, or how to do it in the mobile app, go here.

Rewards and Pledge Levels
Each new pledge level has rewards associated with it, everything from online content to physical items EXCLUSIVELY for our Patrons!

Even if you cannot pledge anything, just sharing the content we create (all of which is free) helps spread our inspirational message and higher education. Sharing our content is very helpful and we appreciate every click!!!!

THANK YOU from all of us here at Dr. Ford Music™, Dr. Ford Productions™, the "Nashville Unsung" Podcast, "Reel Inspiration" and everyone involved in the production of this content.
