Byta partners with The Young Musician’s University (YMU)

We are delighted to announce a partnership between Byta / byta.com, the platform that simplifies the secure exchange of digital audio files and streams, and The Young Musician’s University (YMU).

Marking YMU’s 20th anniversary, Byta will be providing YMU students with a series of workshops and guest lectures across the Summer of 2023. Covering topics focused on key aspects of their music career strategies, entrepreneurship and digital best practices such as file formats and metadata.

“We instantly connected with the amazing team at BYTA because our goals are aligned. We both aim to educate and empower individuals involved in and around music. At The Young Musician’s University, we provide project-based learning. Through our partnership with BYTA, students can become active participants in real-world scenarios as they progress through our Music Industry Curriculum and participate in masterclasses hosted by Byta founder Marc Brown. BYTA brings a wealth of knowledge to the table for our students to learn from, and we can’t wait to see how this partnership impacts the lives of the next generation of young musicians!”Tembi Gray (Director, YMU)

The Byta platform is specifically built for music. It enables the sending and receiving of digital audio in a clean, simple and secure way. Byta is unrivalled in taking advantage of audio files’ unique properties – reading and writing file metadata, converting file formats and delivering fast yet secure streaming.

The Young Musician’s University is an online music school for students ages 4-18. YMU is reimagining music education by providing an ecosystem where students can learn, explore, create, share, and connect as a community of young musicians nationwide. YMU offers an array of instrumental classes, electives, virtual field trips, educational resources, competitions, workshops, clinics, seminars, performances, and collaborative opportunities for our students. At The Young Musician’s University, students thrive as they discover their passion and love for music that will last a lifetime!

Byta has always had a passion for education which lead to the launch of #HowWeListen, the platform’s nonprofit arm. Enabling the consistent delivery of high quality content and events to tomorrow’s artists and industry leaders from every background, and all levels of the music ecosystem.

“We’re delighted to be partnering with The Young Musician’s University. Byta’s goals match perfectly with those of YMU’s, providing artists, musicians and creators of all disciplines with the tools and knowledge needed to move their careers forward.  Being a part of any YMU students’ journey, as they move closer to a career in music, is important to everyone at Byta. On a personal note, I’m also looking forward to meeting the YMU students when I present a series of masterclasses this Summer!”Marc Brown (Founder & CEO, Byta / byta.com) 

“One of our goals at YMU is to help close the gap of youth access to music education. Partnerships are vital as we connect and build meaningful relationships across the country and beyond. Our mission is big, so we can’t do this alone. We are excited about our partnership with BYTA and the wealth of information and educational resources they’ll provide our students. This association will help them grow as young musicians and thrive as young individuals.” – Bevis Gray (Executive Director, YMU)
