Music Internships for summer/fall 2018!!

Hey gang – As I’m sure you’ve heard throughout  “Hey, How’d You Get That Music Job??? podcast episodes, having a music internship is a PHENOMENAL way to get your foot in the door, start networking, and start building relationships in the music industry. I just wanted to pass along some music internships I’ve recently heard about. I’ll try to keep adding more in the comments as I see fit. If you know of any others, please do the same!

*Disclaimer: I can’t formally endorse or provide further information on any of these posts, since I’ve just seen them on social media, so proceed accordingly and do your homework!  Also, I’ll try to indicate “PAID” or “UNPAID” – Lord knows it aint easy trying to support yourself as an artist/creative! But wishing you all the best of luck, keep on hustling, pursue that dream, and DON’T GIVE UP!

Diana LaPointe, Senior Director, Music Licensing at Sony Music Entertainment, knows a thing or two about content. She’s watched the explosive growth of content platforms like Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu from the front row, and how the need for music (and music licensing) has transformed the music industry landscape into a growth area. Diana shares her journey from Berklee School of Music to her music industry careers at Warner Music and Sony Music Entertainment, why this is an exciting time to work in the industry, and how she manages the constant demand for music with Sony’s incredible catalog of artists, both established and emerging.

Tim Hare, Director of Operations at Alibi Music Library, has had several career journeys in music, and he’s just warming up. After playing in the local Boston scene with bands Baby Strange, Aloud, and The Painted Lights at the ripe old age of 19, he toured the UK for a few years before returning to the US and attending Berklee College of Music. Post-graduation, he worked for Warner Music Group doing VIP Concierge tours with Wiz Khalifa, Smashing Pumpkins, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, and Mac Miller, then moved to LA, working in production and day to day management for Mick Jones of Foreigner. Now working at Alibi Library and a freelance composer, his music has appeared in promos for ABC and CBS shows, as well as the short film ‘Charlie’. He talks shop about playing, touring, creating, working for rock stars,  how to network, getting your foot in the door of that next music job and getting yourself out there, no matter what.
