Young people now have a music recording space to use for free in Katoomba.
MYST (Mountains Youth Services Team) has set up the room in their Katoomba Youth Centre, thanks to more than $6000 in funding donated by Stuart Cam from Future State Studios and Upper Blue Mountains Sunrise Rotary Club.
Katoomba Music also fixed a bass guitar for MYST for free and has offered to maintain the instruments moving forward.
"At MYST, we recognised that there are a lot of young people in the Mountains who enjoy making music but may not be able to afford equipment, or maybe they can't make noise at home and many do not have either the space to practice or the financial means to book studio time to record their music," said MYST manager Kim Scanlon.
The space enables young bands to rehearse and record their music for free.
MYST will be holding a showcase day early in the year, once COVID restrictions ease, to show interested young people how to use the equipment.
Once young people have been through an induction process with the equipment use, they will receive a 'MYST licence' to use the equipment, so they can contact Ms Scanlon to book in.
If any young people - between 12 and 25 years - are interested in having an induction and using the equipment, contact Ms Scanlon on 0488 037 237.
