For 11-year-old Jeremy Milligan, busking isn't a new thing.
His father Brian has been performing with him since he was about eight or nine.
But he had one goal while performing during the Chiltern Jam Session weekend - raise enough money for a PlayStation game.
"Busking gets him out and about and he is continuing to learn music which is great," Mr Milligan said.
"He wanted to busk to raise money for some Spiderman game but it is great for him to go out there and perform and earn the money that way.

"We have been performing for some years now and normally I put the Evis costume on and sing with him but he has moved away from that type of music and found what he likes."
Jeremy was just one of more than 60 musicians who descended on the town for the fourth annual event, many coming back every year.
Everton's Tim Dickinson admits he isn't "much of a musician" but made the trip for his fourth jam session.
"It is just a great way to play music with different people and different musicians," he said.
"We are just a few mates who come together and enjoy playing music.
"On Saturday night there would have been at least 30 people playing and jamming together with all different instruments from a didgeridoo to a trombone, cello and a banjo."
Organiser Marianne O'Connor said the "yarn bombing" adds to the "buzz in the town".
"A lot of hard work goes into those creations and making the streetscape so colourful and fun," she said.
"That combined with all the different types of music playing really made quite a atmosphere in the town."
The Chiltern streetscape was festooned with yarn bombing created and hung up by the passionate team of crocheters and knitters to celebrate the event.
Musicians of any standard were welcomed to join in a variety of jam sessions and open mics that ran consecutively at different venues over the weekend.
"There was a real party atmosphere in the town and it was great to see all the different demographics coming along and enjoying this great weekend," Ms O'Connor said.
"And for locals the jam sessions give them access to free music right on their door step and the whole region comes to enjoy it."
