As a music major, naturally you love to perform. The great thing about music internships is that they give you the opportunity to show off your musical talents even more. For example, each year the Eastern Music Festival seeks performance interns, who actually get to play with the professional faculty orchestra, fine-tuning their skills along the way. By the same token, music interns can work in the area of stage management, assisting with staging and lighting for performances. If music business is more your style, there are opportunities to work in the areas of publicity and marketing for musical theatres and shows. Internships in music can be found at many other venues too, including studios, record labels, and radio stations; it all depends on what your goals and interests are. An awesome aspect of these positions is that many of them provide stipends for travel and meals, which has become a bit of a rarity in this day and age. And even better than the money, interning in music will help you discover which part of the business you’re most passionate about. This will be immensely beneficial to you, as the music industry has so many options to choose from. But whether you’re unsure or absolutely certain about what the future holds for you, music internships will help you jumpstart your career.
