Internships

Why intern? To explore your career options, gain on-the-job training, find a mentor. . . and get out of the classroom and into the world. Berklee’s Office of Experiential Learning offers the chance for students to connect college curriculum with the day-to-day music industry.

Always Trying to Get “Closer”

Hello All!

Lucas here. Just to give a brief refresher, I’m interning at Disruptor Records in New York City – An upcoming record label lead by Adam Alpert that has a joint venture agreement with Sony Music Entertainment.

After my time here I’ve learned that the EDM world is fast, ever-changing, and always on the move to the next big sound. It lives within the realms of Youtube Channels, Spotify Playlists, Social Media Profiles, Soundcloud Tastemakers, EDM Blogs, Festivals, Underground Scenes, etc. Now for each genre of music there can be tremendous to minute differences to how you market it, sell it, promote it, whatever – but all musicians, bands, and artists start in the same place.

When I first got to Berklee in Fall of 2013 I was 100% more into MP&E and leaning towards a career as an Audio Engineer. Within a few semesters I had gone through a few assistant engineering gigs at local studios in Boston and eventually landed a position as an in-house recording engineer.
