Now On PatreonA few months ago I started a Patreon page. There, I share tutorial videos, projects I'm working on, previews of unreleased music as well as a few performance clips. If you become a member, you can see all the exclusive content that you can't find anywhere else. You will be supporting me doing what I love to do and helping me do more of it. Being a member will also help me get to know each of you more personally through the interactive questions and comments. A great thing about supporting through Patreon is that there is no middleman such as a record label or venue telling me what to do.
FYI, the rewards are per creation and I'll share 2 or 3 video per month, so make sure to set a monthly limit when you sign up. Also, you can always adjust your pledge as you go.
