Join me on Patreon

9 June 2020

I am delighted to announce that I have recently launched my new Patreon page!

If you’re already well versed in the wonders of Patreon then please visit my page and have a read of the rewards I’m offering and the four different membership levels (be sure to click “see all 4 levels”). Then — if you’re so inclined — I would be honoured if you would consider becoming a patron of mine, starting from just £3/month.

If this is the first you’ve heard of Patreon, let me tell you a bit about it, and why I’ve set up a page:

Patreon is a platform where people can support and interact with their favourite artists, and receive fantastic rewards in return for a monthly subscription. Until now, I have been sharing my new compositions online as YouTube videos, and offering scores and recordings for sale via my website. I will continue to share new compositions via YouTube, but having a Patreon page allows me to offer a range of ‘rewards’ in return for a monthly subscription, from as low as £3/month. Building up a community of patrons will enable me to devote more time to composing, invest in better quality recording equipment, collaborate and record with other musicians, and allow you to have an intimate role in my musical life.

Here are some of the rewards I’m offering on Patreon:

  • Complete access to PDF scores and audio recordings of all my new compositions (plus everything I’ve released over the last year). I will release a minimum of one new composition per month. These will be mostly, but not always, for piano.
  • Pre-release access to new compositions (one week before public release).
  • Personal commissions: unique pieces written from me to you.
  • Scores in the post each month.
  • Exclusive live streams, behind-the-scenes videos, and live Q&A sessions, available only on Patreon.
  • Vote on many aspects of my future compositions (their inspiration, their names, moods, genre, and much more).
  • Be listed as a supporter in my videos.

So — if you’re a music lover wanting to support new music, or if you’re a pianist looking for new material to play each month, I hope you will consider joining my community on Patreon. This is the start of an exciting journey which will evolve over time, so please let me know if you have any questions or feedback about this new endeavour.
