Darren Teh from “An Honest Mistake” has shared with us regarding how Youtube has affected the music industry nowadays. With Youtube and other social media, they were able to have an extra reach. They have uploaded their practice videos, music videos and etc to youtube. Some of the people have been seeking for how it would be like when a band is jamming. Thus, the videos he uploaded actually helped these people learn more about it. Apart from being an entertainment platform, Youtube is a good source for education.



Apart from that, the media members have also asked the local acts and the Youtube representatives regarding hints on becoming youtuber. (All these can be viewed through video coverage here: )
