Change the future of new music

Music Patron connects you with composers to make new music possible.

To create new music requires innovation & risk-taking. 
Not all composers have this freedom. 

We want to change that.

How it works

1. Choose your composer

We’re showcasing some of today’s most exciting composers.

2. Donate monthly

3. Connect
