Espalhados através dos quatro (?) cantos da internet estão vídeos, fotos, blogs e histórias de valor imensurável. Esta semana resolvi fazer uma edição especial do Blogs pois me deparei com duas pérolas de conhecimento musical. Acredito que a grande maioria dos meus leitores sejam estudantes de música, aspirantes a alunos da Berklee e que se interessarão neste artigo que encontrei no website de Michael Zilber, MichaelZilber.com.

Localizado no prédio principal da Berklee, o 150 Massachusets Avenue, se encontra o refeitório da Berklee. Mais conhecida como Berklee Caf, o refeitório e um destino certo para aqueles que desejem comida de qualidade a preços bons e que se interessem em conhecer seu companheiros de faculdade.
Berklee Blogs checks in with Camilo Puche, a Music Business major and fall intern, finishing up his internship with Conductor’s Cooperative Management, a management company providing worldwide representation and management for classical music conductors. In his final blog, Camilo tells us how interns can create a good impression by ending their internships properly…
As the internship experience comes to an end, it is a very good idea to leave things in the best terms possible with your supervisors and coworkers. Regardless of being offered a job or not, having had problems with coworkers or not, or any other good or bad experiences you may have had in the workspace, you should always try to leave behind the best impression of yourself.
It is important that you try to finish your assignments or projects before the internship is over, however, if for some reason beyond your control you are not able to finish them, you should inform our supervisors so that the job gets done.
This may require a great deal of effort and self-effacement on your part, but it is important that as you begin your career one builds a reputation of being responsible and hard working up until the last day you are on the job. Continue reading →
Berklee Blogs hears from Mabel Leong, beginning her second internship with Mix One Studios in Boston. Mabel tells Berklee Blogs how sometimes the best opportunities to get ahead are in “routine” tasks…
The most common advice I heard for studio internships are either one of the following: step up, take initiative, stand out, be THE intern, color-code tracks and always top up the coffee etc. In other words, it’s the onus of the intern to be on the ball and (hopefully) be spotted for it. This view is far from wrong, and it was the mentality I had when this internship started. As the intern, however, my work seems to run either routinely or event-ly. Routine work are the admin tasks that many internship articles write of, like coming in first to clean up the studios, take out the garbage, make the morning coffee, etc. The events are the actual studio sessions that occur, that have recently picked up in speed. A number of sessions occurred that have been both smaller in setup and huge in the making. Continue reading →
Berklee Blogs hears from Mabel Leong, beginning her second internship with Mix One Studios in Boston. Mabel tells Berklee Blogs how an internship can show students that one’s opportunities are not limited to the scope of their declared major…
It sounds odd to say this, but this internship has opened my eyes up a lot more to the ‘music industry’ than I thought I knew through Berklee.
One big difference I found between Berklee and my internship is the variety of work you can do is not limited to what you study or have studied. I get the feeling that, at Berklee, your major (or your activity) at the school encourages you to identify with certain roles we think the industry is based on: songwriters, lyricists, composers, arrangers, producers, audio engineers, sound designers, mixers, etc. Yet, I’m becoming more aware that, slowly but surely, anyone could be everything that I mentioned- and more.
