RED AMBASSADORS

THE RED CYMBALS’ MENTORING PROGRAM

DEVELOPING / ENCOURAGING EMERGING ARTISTS
(UP TO 18 YEARS OF AGE)

PROMOTING DRUMMING AND
POSITIVE MENTAL HEALTH

WHAT IS THE RED AMBASSADOR PROGRAM?

The Red Ambassador Program is a Red Cymbals initiative to work with young drummers up to 18 year of age* who want to be a part of the Red Family. We get a get a lot of requests for ‘sponsorship’ but believe it would be massively irresponsible to give away free stuff because it would not teach younger drummers to work hard what they want to achieve.

Therefore, we have set up the Red Ambassador Program to help young drummers achieve what they want to as a person and drummer. A Red Ambassador is someone who is keen to promote drumming and positive mental health as well as to be mentored and encouraged by the Red Cymbals family to be the best person and drummer that they can be.

We will:
Share our knowledge with you.
Mentor you in growing your gifting as a drummer.
Coach you in making quality content to increase your online (and real life) profile/presence.
Promote you as a Red Ambassador on our website and social media.
Give you exclusive discount offers on Red Cymbals, apparel and other Red Cymbals gear.
Help you get the cymbals and gear that will suit your needs
and so much more…
