…Put another dime in the jukebox baby!
Last year I ventured off to Bangkok, Thailand and found myself deep within the music industry, interning at an orchestral recording studio. The experience was incredible and allowed me to become much more diverse within my field. Being at the studio allowed me to have a great hands-on experience working with professionals who were happy to share their knowledge. It was also great to be able to apply many things I had learnt in University and demonstrate it through my hard work on various projects.
Last year’s amazing journey has inspired me to come again this year, which is a decision I am very glad to have made. I feel much more confidant and in control this year. My people skills have developed hugely thus improving my workflow and my quality of work. At the studio I have developed a trust with all my colleagues, which has allowed them to give me bigger responsibilities, such as teaching other interns the basics of the studio, or working directly with clients and working with they’re needs. I’ve had the chance to run my own sessions and work privately with musicians without supervision, which allows me to feel confident that my level of musical/engineering skill has risen over time, which I give total credit to my University for giving me those key skills to be applied into a workplace. This year for me feels like I have taken another huge step in the ladder to success. My thinking is much more different and I am think much bigger than last year, in terms of my future prospects.
