Support me on Patreon!


I’m super-excited to announce the launch of my new Patreon page, where you can check out all of my new music videos, piano tutorials, works-in-progress and other fun stuff! You can watch the Welcome Video above for an explanation of what it’s all about, or read on for more info below.

What’s a Patreon?

Patreon is a platform for fans to connect with their favorite artists and support them directly if they so desire. It’s kind of like a Kickstarter, but instead of funding a single project, you’re funding a creator on an ongoing (monthly) basis. In exchange, there are different rewards you can get depending on the amount that you contribute—from early access to new content, to mp3 downloads, to tutorial videos and even private concerts!

Why am I on it?

For me, my Patreon page represents a central location where I can share all my various musical projects and interests with all of you, and there’s a community/chat feature so we can talk about it too! It also represents a commitment on my part to releasing my work on a consistent and frequent basis, instead of just waiting for the right time, the ideal circumstances, or the perfect performance. What I really want to share with you all is the process of creating, because that’s the part that’s most exciting for me—and hopefully for you too!

What am I creating on Patreon?

Here are some of the things I plan to share on my page:
– improvisation videos;
– piano and music theory tutorials;
– new and old compositions (audio files and/or videos);
– musical experiments and works-in-progress;
– blog-style posts.

This has been a long process, but I’m really pleased with the direction this project will take me—specifically, in the direction of releasing a bunch of new content in the coming months and sharing it with all of you!

To celebrate the launch, I’ve also released a few new YouTube videos: a couple of music videos and a new tutorial video!

“The Other Side”:
“Exploring Harmony #1”:
“Funky April 13th”:

Please check out the page, enjoy the YouTube videos and consider supporting—there are lots of great rewards to choose from!
Thanks for reading—I really appreciate you taking the time to check out my music!

– Jake
