Music For All!

I’ve decided to take a leap of faith and offer all of my music on Bandcamp for pay-what-you-want! It’s a wonderful gift to be able to share my songs with you all. I’m grateful for the support I’ve received from family, friends and fans in crowdfunding campaigns. It’s enabled me to start a solid music career and live that dream of being a performing songwriter and educator.


There’s a sustainable way that you can directly continue to support my music, Patreon. It’s a service that allows you to become a patron for a couple bucks a month. You can be part of my continued efforts making music, and realizing my other dream, to provide every student the opportunity to learn how they can use music to express themselves and tell their story in their own voice. For every milestone we reach, I will offer classes to schools free of charge! It’s a great way to spread the love.

Please take a look at my Patreon page and consider becoming a patron today.

Thanks friends,
