At 16 years old, Max Tyler, has dreams of a career in song-writing and music production, inspired by industry professionals such as Fisher, Danny Howard and Carl Cox.
Max said: “They have all worked extremely hard to create music that people love, that’s what I want to achieve.”
At Bloxham School he is part of the Chapel Choir, sings in school productions and develops his music production skills.

After meeting a DJ at his mum’s birthday party, Max began helping him at local events and moving kit.
Growing up listening to club and dance music encouraged him to develop his own DJing skills.
During lockdown Max has been doing just this, providing breaktime raves for Bloxham students to bring a little relief and positivity to the remote learning environment, usually bringing in 22 total views with three to five people watching live.
But that drastically changed during last Friday’s set when, family friend Chris Moyles, gave Max a shout out during his Friday evening Instagram Live DJ set, saying 'He’s young but he’s very good. Check him out. Give him a watch if you can people.'
When Max’s set went live he watched his views rise all the way up to 1,400.
A spokesperson for Bloxham School said: "Max was so excited to receive a shout out on Chris’ Instagram Live set last week and even received a shout out on Chris Moyles’ radio show yesterday (Thursday May 28.)"
Max has learnt a lot since last week’s set and worked hard preparing for an even bigger and better set on Friday May 29.
Max added: “Looking back to last week, the highlight was the joy on my face when I started with 28 live views and watching it climb to 56, then 78 all the way to 1,750 - it was surreal.”
With 1,500 new Instagram followers and rumours of Mista Jam tuning in to watch tonight, Max knows this is an opportunity to step up his game and bring his love of music to a larger audience.
After his latest set Max's Instagram followers have now risen to more than 4,000.
He also had 3.7k live views at his latest set on Friday May 29.
Just like last week Max will be starting after Chris Moyles finishes his set.
