Young people now have a music recording area to use free of charge at Katoomba.
MYST (Mountains Youth Services Team) set up the venue at their Katoomba youth center, with funding of over $ 6,000 donated by Stuart Cam of Future State Studios and the Upper Blue Mountains Sunrise Rotary Club.
Katoomba Music also repaired a bass guitar for MYST free of charge and offered to maintain the instruments in the future.
“At MYST, we have recognized that there are a lot of young people in the mountains who love to make music but may not have the means to pay for materials, or maybe they cannot. noise at home and that many also don’t have the space to practice or the financial means to set aside studio time to record their music, âsaid MYST director Kim Scanlon.
The space allows young groups to rehearse and record their music for free.
MYST will host a demo day at the start of the year, once COVID restrictions are relaxed, to show interested young people how to use the equipment.
Once the youth have gone through a process of getting started with the use of the equipment, they will be given a âMYST licenseâ to use the equipment, so that they can contact Ms. Scanlon to make a reservation.
If young people – between 12 and 25 years old – are interested in an initiation and the use of the material, contact Ms. Scanlon on 0488 037 237.
