Covid-19 Pandemic

Amid this covid-19 pandemic, we musicians have found ourselves unemployed during this time. Whenever there's been need to raise funds, for whatever reason, musicians are called upon to entertain folks to help raise money for that cause, being that personal or community. Now, like many others occupations that there's no work, we musicians are in need of help.

If you know a musician and you're able to help them out in any way, I know it would be greatly appreciated in their time of need.

I have lost all of my contracts for the remainder of the year. We hope & pray that things will settle down soon so we can get back to work.

You could help my family out greatly buy purchasing cds, mp3s, sheet music, music books, online video lessons, single teaching videos, any of my products on my website. This way, I would have some income coming in and you get something to keep you occupied & entertained during this time. 

I have also set up a donation button below if you just wanted to make a donation. You can donate any amount you feel comfortable with. Any donation will be greatly appreciated. I will send you a digital gift of appreciation for your donation. I thank you in advance for your consideration on this. We hope to be back playing music real soon...
