Meet the NYMAZ Music Ambassadors!

Aidan and Luke from Thirsk, aka The Drivers, http://wearethedrivers.com/ have been part of the NYMAZ Music Ambassadors project since April and have developed from music enthusiasts, to a fully functioning outfit. They will be sharing aspects of their learning through video guides (posted on Youtube and the NYMAZMusic Facebook page ), culminating in: an Ultimate Guide to Busking - for young people, by young people.

As Ambassadors, the duo have also had the opportunity to develop their own skills in the following areas:

Recording techniques

  Software use – tracking, editing, mixing, mastering
  Microphone techniques
  Post production
  Rooms and environment
  Vocal and Performance techniques

Music Industry

  Promotion packages and constructing materials
  Marketing/Advertising and Brand Image
  Web Design
  Industry pathways
  Dealing with clients

‘It went from us being a bit of a mess around/joke, to being established, buskers and giggers, with a website, all whilst working with NYMAZ’ - Luke

The Ambassadors meet each Wednesday evening, 6-8pm, at Rural Arts in Thirsk, the group is open to anyone over the age of 14 who has an interest in music.

Ambassadors is part of the NYMAZ Youth Music Programme, funded by the National Foundation for Youth Music. More information and to get involved http://www.nymaz.org.uk/for-young-people/nymaz-music-ambassadors>
