In response to the dramatic changes to the landscape that musicians face, I began livestreaming, from home, a few weeks into the COVID pandemic. Soon thereafter I started the weekly "Escape, From Home" piano hour on Tuesday evenings at 7pm(ET) on my Facebook page, which now continues as "Piano For My Friends", Thursday evenings at 7pm, on my YouTube Channel. This has become its own thing, reminiscent of the years I played the piano room at JRs Pub in Chestertown, MD, with a virtual community; listening, socializing and sharing the space. Some months ago, I added a livestream on Wednesday evenings titled "Inside the Process", where I share from my perspective and experience. The connections that music facilitates are why I play the piano professionally. And I've been blessed to do this my entire (working) life, with no intention of stopping now. In a restaurant environment, the tip jar sweetens the deal for the musician. In a "live video", such as mine, the tip jar (in it's various manifestations) is everything. So I am most grateful to all who "drop a tip in the jar". There are 4 ways to do this:

  • A one time tip via PayPal   
  • A sponsorship on Patreon  (more info below)
  • A check via snail mail
  • Vemno   @Joe-Holt-58

 If you choose to become a Patron (sponsor on Patreon) and support my efforts with a recurring tip (once/month), you will receive recorded content (unlisted YouTube links, downloads that are yours to keep, and more) exclusive to those who regularly provide support.
