Why Midwest?

Midwest Clinic is the largest event of its kind in the world. I'll be able to see an unbelievable selection of new products, meet some of the best manufacturers and artists in the industry, and attend clinics and presentations with people like Anthony McGill of the New York Philharmonic!

What will come of the trip?

My goal is:

  • make connections with as many people in the industry as possible
  • Conduct on location, live events for backers daily
  • If possible, record interviews on site
  • Produce FREE content (podcasts, blog posts, reviews, live broadcasts) about the event for months to come

What's the budget look like?

But... can you pull this off?

Since Clarineat's inception in 2016 I've already taken the show on the road FOUR times at personal expense and with fantastic results:

1) Penticton, British Columbia, Canada: Interview clarinet master Peter Spriggs at his home

2) Montreal, Quebec, Canada: interview with the legendary Lori Freedman (unreleased... soon!)

2) Lawrence, Kansas, USA: Attend ClarinetFest 2016. Made DOZENS of connections and will still producing content from this trip for months to come.

4) Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada: Toured Backun Musical Services facility. Two interviews came directly from this trip with more artist connections sure to come! Best giveaway EVER came from this trip as well thanks to the Backun team!

Each one of these trips resulted in the fostering of priceless connections, and sparked the idea for many hours of free content for the clarinet community that has been enjoyed in over 50 countries around the world.

Why do you need funding?

After doing so much travel at personal expense this year, I simply can't afford a 4th trip. I really want to bring the most value I can to the clarinet community through my show, and I'm reaching out to the listeners for a little help!

If only one third of social media followers gave $1 I could go on this trip and bring HOURS of free content for all.
