I'm asking for donations to:
1) to keep my YouTube channel active and moving forward
2) to continue to improve my studio (audio and video)
3) to visit the estates of past composer's to study archival scores and manuscripts
1. I've been invited to go to Los Angeles to stay with Brent Fischer, who is the son of the late great Claire Fischer. Claire, who passed away a few years ago. Claire Fishcer is one of the great composers of the past 50 years. Besides how own masterpieces, Claire arranged most of the string sections for some of Prince’s greatest works, (including the masterful Parade album (1986), also known as the soundtrack to Under The Cherry Moon film). Brent has invited me to come stay at their home and study Claire's library of compositions and arrangements. I need donations for travel and lodging expenses.
2. Im always fighting to keep the technology in my studio up to date. Some parts of my studio are becoming obsolete faster then I can afford to replace them. I need donations to continue to upgrade this studio that I've spent years building. (osxdaily.com wrote an article about my studio. You can read about it here. http://osxdaily.com/2015/09/05/mac-setup-home-recording-studio).
3. The videos on my YouTube channel take a lot of time to produce. All content, including music video, graphics and notation are 100% original. This greatly adds to the time it takes ti produce videos. It’s practically a full time job, but I love doing it. Music tutorials, studio tips, and my “HOW TO” series of in depth training videos has succeeded way beyond anything I could have imagined. I don't get paid for this work. I’ve never received a check from YouTube, (Google). I need donations to keep my successful and rapidly growing YouTube channel moving forward. I'm try to produce one or two in depth videos per week.
