THE NEWZIK TEAM

It’s a story about passionate musicians brought together around a musical project.

Sadly, as they rehearse, they face the same issues. Losing or forgetting scores, stressing out due to page turns, having a hard time reading out used and erased scores…

And yet, they all believe in digital, they all deplore the fact musicians still do not take advantage of technological breakthroughs.

This shared vision will lead them to unite around the Newzik project.

The Rebel

A model graduate from the prestigious HEC Business School with years of M&A and consulting experience, Raph decided to leave everything for his greatest passion: music.
Quicker than you can say “Depressingly Tedious Due Diligence”, Raphael joined Newzik bringing with him an insatiable energy and creativity that had accumulated over time.
He’s a bit of handyman at Newzik. Besides his guitar skills and addiction to Excel tables, Raph works with Aurélia on the Newzik Project.

The Rock Star

Her secret dream: to duet on stage with Beyoncé. But until then, the Newzik Project.
An EDHEC Business School graduate who’s worked with Louis XIV at the Palace of Versailles, Aurélia, microphone in hand, took off to perform in Latin America, India, and Europe.
Quad-lingual, she’s the international interlocutor of Newzik’s conductors, teachers and music groups from around the world.

The Trendy

Luis is like the perfect mix between music and computer science.
After enjoying a rather traditional childhood while attending conservatory, Luis discovered his real passion for electronics.
He tossed his guitar for a synthesizer, his amp for a brand new DAW.
He has the ideal profile to take care of all our new features.

The Apple Addict

Pierre B. is our Benjamin of the team. He is the tireless devotee Newzik needed to give the app the final touches before its big release! Born with an Apple Watch on his wrist, Pierre spends his days (and nights!) peeling back all the secrets of the Big Apple before the public has a chance to bite. And the cherry on the cake... he’s a music fan. We like!

From crying the harmonic scales to picking up guitar at age 7, Robert impressed the Hollywood paparazzi at GIT (renamed Musicians Institute of Los Angeles). A perfectionist who emanates professionalism and rigor, Bob manages our high quality Newzik Store and lots of other musical projects.
