Thank you for checking out my Patreon Page!

Patreon is a platform that allows appreciators of art to help fund the creative video projects of independent artists like myself. By collectively pledging to give me a small tip (e.g. $3.00) for every video that I release (≈ 1 every 1-3 months) I can begin to cover some of the production costs involved in each video. Also with your support I can continue to devote more time and energy to the creation of these solo bass arrangements and compositions. 

To show you how much I appreciate your help, I have set up a series of rewards for various levels of pledges (e.g. video tutorials, videos on the creative process, and private lessons on skype). See the list below!

To begin supporting me, just make a pledge for each music video that I release onto YouTube (≈ 1 every 1-3 months).

Pledge $3 or more per New Video Release
All lower level awards, PLUS:
You'll have special access to videos where I discuss the creative process involved in my solo bass compositions and arrangements. With these videos you can learn about some of the techniques and methods that can be used in your own composing and arranging. 

Specific areas that will be addressed include: 

1. How to create polyphonic textures on the solo electric bass (i.e. create the semblance of an ensemble performance)
2. How to apply extended techniques to create the above textures as well as create interesting timbres 

and much more....



Pledge $5 or more per New Video Release
All lower level awards, PLUS:
You will get exclusive access to tutorials of how to play select sections of my arrangements and compositions for each new video that I release. 

With these tutorials you will learn the following: 

1. How extended techniques have been applied to my compositions/arrangements to create polyphonic textures and unique timbres 
2. How to break down complex combinations of rhythms into simple step-by-step exercises
3. How to use a metronome and other technological learning tools to assist with the practice of complex arrangements 

and much more... 




Pledge $20 or more per New Video Release
All lower level awards, PLUS:

You will receive a signed copy of my debut solo bass album 'Out of the Bassment' upon agreeing to the pledge along with a special thanks in the video descriptions of each new video that I upload. 
Pledge $30 or more per New Video Release
All lower level rewards, PLUS:
You will get a 30 minute private bass lesson on Skype for every new YouTube video I release! 



Our lessons can focus any of the following: 

1. Extended Techniques (e.g. tapping, slapping, harmonics, artificial harmonics, right hand fretting, crack bass)
2. Learning specific sections of my own arrangements or compositions 
3. Guidance in help you with your own arrangements or compositions 
4. Music theory applied to the bass (e.g. walking bass lines, scales etc) 
5. Improvisation 

and much more.....





Goals
$9 of $800 per New Video Release
Composing and arranging of each of my solo bass pieces takes a lot of time, in some cases (e.g. my  "Chameleon" arrangement) it can take as many as 400 hours (including practicing). I love creating music and bringing happiness to people around the world through the interconnectivity that music provides and would continue to do this even if I wasn't paid a dime. However, with your help I can devote all my time and energy to this effort and continue to produce works that push the technical limits of the electric bass.
