Every dollar helps.
I will write you a personal â€œThank You!â€ letter and mail it to you.
I will write you a personal â€œThank You!â€ letter and mail it to you, along with a signed copy of my upcoming â€œToothâ€ Album (see "MUSIC" description to bottom left)!
Above, plus I will mail you signed copies of my previous three albums. Two feature the MIKE BLOCK BAND (original songs and compositions with cello, vocals, electric guitar and bass, and drums), and one features the TRIBOROUGH TRIO (acoustic arrangements with cello, guitar, and bass).
The above, plus you will receive a special recipe book of my favorite Liquid Diet meals that I have perfected during the recovery time and subsequent oral surgeries (Blender not included).Â Â This will be accompanied by an important â€œHow-toâ€ video on the art of flossing (for those of you who prefer to chew).
I can't think of one for this level!!! Can you think of one? I retain the right to veto, if necessary ... :)
Above, plus I will give you a private music lesson (in-person or via Skype).Â Â If you are not a cellist, I can offer an improvisational lesson, or a tune-learning/stylistic lesson from a particular genre of your interest, or even a compositional lesson.Â Â We could even have a collaborative co-writing session, and Iâ€™ll let you keep the copyrightÂ :)
Do you have a hands-down favorite song, or even an instrumental tune, that you would LOVE to hear played on cello?? Pick a piece of music, and I will arrange it for cello/voice,Â record a solo version of it and email you the exclusive MP3, as well as post a video of myself performing it on YouTube, with a verbal dedication to YOU.
Â I will write a song based off of a transformational story from YOUR life.Â Â Â Iâ€™m particularly interested in â€œDisasterâ€ stories, but any transformational journey of yours (or a friend/family member) would be great to write about!Â Â Â Â I will record a solo version of it and email you the exclusive MP3, as well as post a video of myself performing it on YouTube, for you to share with friends/family. With enough backers, I will release a full album of these songs.
I will give you 3 music lessons, as described above, plus provide you a full scholarship to attend the Mike Block String Camp in Vero Beach, Florida! Â www.MikeBlockStringCamp.com. The lessons/scholarship can be spread across multiple recipients, if you wish!Â Â Perfect for familiesÂ :)
Â I will provide a private performance for your friends and family at a location of your choosing, on a mutually agreeable evening.Â Â I will handle travel expenses if you live close to NYC, or if you can wait until Iâ€™m in your region next!
