Hey guys thanks for visiting my Patreon account! I'm going to briefly give a bio about myself but i'm not going to give too much away! My name is Mason Ledbetter (known as Masonvpt online) I'm a 25 year old YouTube/Instagram Drummer. I've been posting drum videos for around 8 years on youtube and social media.  

InstagramTwitterFacebook

I started playing when I was a little kid, although I don't remember learning how to play, my parents say I was around 3 or 4 years old.
I've wanted to create success being a drummer somehow and just the fact that you're here reading this means that my goals can be reached and I'm still on my way!
I've done all kinds of things musically, I don't want to give too much away but I've been in various original and cover bands since I was in Jr. High School, and I still am!
I've been recorded on a studio album along with a few amateur albums and songs. I've collaborated with many musicians and recorded drum tracks for many as well! I've met a lot of awesome people along the way and you are the next I plan to meet if I haven't already!
On top of all that I also work a full time rotating shift job of 50-60 plus hours!
But It all comes down to this...
My life has always revolved around music and drums, thanks to the Internet and social media I've been blessed with all kinds of ways to make my dreams happen, and this Patreon page is a HUGE way to make that happen and I'm thankful that this opportunity even exists!


SO WHY EXACTLY DID I DECIDE TO MAKE THIS PATREON ACCOUNT??

Unfortunately being a drum cover creator on YouTube has a big down side. YouTube sets big stipulations on copyrighted music, so we cannot monetize our covers to make money on YouTube or any other outlet for that matter. I get asked this question a lot and the answer is no, I do not make money from YouTube or any other outlet at all. That's why I'm so thankful that Patreon exists! 
Also as I mentioned earlier, I work a 7 day rotating shift full time job at a glass factory in my hometown of Decatur, Illinois. My schedule goes like this...
7 days straight 8 hour shifts.
7 days of first shift 8am to 4pm then 48 hours off
then 7 days straight of second shift 4pm to 12am then 48 hours off
then 7 days straight of third shift 12am to 8am then 4 days off and repeat!
I've been on this schedule for 5 years so far!
Basically I'm sure you're aware how hard it is for a musician these days, but i've been trying to make ends meet with this job but unfortunately I barely have time to create content for my followers and fans considering I have to sleep and take care of my house and other life issues..
All I'm really doing here is trying to create other income so that I don't have to live paycheck to paycheck barely even making ends meet and hopefully get out of this crazy swing shift job to free up my time so that I can really give my followers what they deserve and just have some success doing what I really love to do in life. But in the meantime I've been using every ounce of time I can muster up to create any kind of content for you! Anyway enough about all that, let's find out how this works!


THIS IS HOW MY PATREON WORKS!!

I'm so excited about this! This is such an amazing opportunity! I've been thinking of better ways for my followers to get the best content and at the same time they can be a Sponsor themselves!
Think of this like my own private Inner Circle of my favorite fans and followers. And just with One Dollar per video I put out a month (which could be anywhere from 2-4 videos, you can also adjust a max limit when you subscribe) You can get access to my private Patreon feed and even my private Facebook account for Patrons! You will see exclusive content like..
Daily Vlogs, Live Streams, Pictures that are not posted anywhere else, drums only videos, tutorials, my thoughts throughout the day and so much more, you will even have access to merch that no one else has access to!  You can find out exactly what kind of Sponsor packages you can choose from in the Rewards section on the right hand side, you can also see the pricing options, starting out with only 1 Dollar. Anything helps and everything is much appreciated. I'm truly grateful for all of you! You are all going to learn so much about me!

WELCOME TO MY INNER CIRCLE!!

 
Thanks again for stopping by and I hope you choose to see what I have to offer here! 
I decided to put a Frequently Asked Questions section below, just in case you had any questions that I didn't cover above! Thanks again for supporting me on any outlet, even if you choose not to be a part of this, I'm still truly grateful for you! If you'd rather make a one time donation instead then you can easily do so using PayPal!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS!

1. Can I decide to unsubscribe or stop support?

Yess! Very easily! If you do ever decide that, that's totally fine and I appreciate the support that you have given!

2. How many videos will we be paying for a month?

I can't guarantee a number because of my crazy schedule but I know it will be somewhere around 2-4 videos. But you can set a max limit for your budget when you sign up!

3. Does Patreon accept PayPal?

Yes this is the easiest and safest way!

4. Does it have to be U.S Dollars?

No! Patreon will convert any currency! This is a U.S based site so everything on here is written in USD but that does not matter, you can pay in any currency!

Thanks again so much for any and all contributions made!
