    Hi I’m sending this on behalf of my son Kane he is already studying at access to music in Manchester and would love to get involved in the workings of it all.
    He is already familiar with the working on the recording part and the mixers decks.This would be his dream job if you have any vacancies he’s not afraid of hard work and he makes a mean cup of tea .
