Help me pursue my musical dream

Taiyo has been busking for 4 years on and off.
He started with percussions on a bongo, he also played the didgeridoo.
Check out his busking on his YouTube channel at
In February 2019 he got a keyboard and started learning how to play (on YouTube of course). Then a couple of months ago he started singing and started busking with his keyboard. Taiyo has always bought his own equipment with his own money from busking.
Now that he moved his busking online due to Covid19 he is using GoFundMe to fund his next purchase:

A Roland Cube Ex Amplifier so all the people on the balconies on the buildings around us can listen to his busking from the Community Garder. It's a professional amplifier, used by all buskers. He has been looking at it for a while. 

More details about the Cube EX amplifier:


First step of GoFundMe reached on 1/01/2010: 1,200
Taiyo wanted to buy a proper digital piano with 88 keys: the Roland FP-30. It is the piano he plays on with his music mentor and really like the feeling of playing an acoustic piano. It's $1,200, the highest amount for a musical instrument he has saved for.  So far Taiyo has been busking in Manly (a holiday destination) during the holiday and has already raised quite a bit! Will you help him reach his target?  If he raises more, it will go toward his weekly sessions with his music mentor, at $50 a session.
