Internships place students in environments where they learn how to take responsibility for all aspects of a musical endeavor--performance, teaching, administrative work, and marketing, among others--because music careers today demand all of these skills. Whatever you want to pursue, this is where you practice making it happen.
The EM staff will work with you to identify a host organization and internship opporunity that reflects your interests and goals. Internships are available for 1 credit or zero credits through ENTP 440 for undergraduate students and ENT 540 for graduate students. Below are a few examples of internships that NEC students have completed:
- Boston Ballet: building experience as a piano accompanist for the Boston Ballet School
- Club Oberon: helping with marketing and operations at the cutting edge second stage of the American Repertory Theatre
- Scullers Jazz Club: assisting with concert production and artist management at a thriving jazz venue, building to a show at the club for their own ensemble
