Minneapolis, MN (September 26, 2011)—The Hideaway Studio in Minneapolis is expanding its internship program.
“Since its establishment seven years ago, The Hideaway Studio has had its share of interns, but recruitment was done on a more casual basis and not part of its regular routine and staffing,” explains The Hideaway Studio’s founder Joseph Mabbott, an producer, engineer and mixer. “By stepping up our program, we are devoting a more aggressive approach in our intern recruitment to provide a steady revolving door of hands-on opportunity for the so many young, talented and driven music individuals out there who are looking to build fruitful careers within the music industry.”
As an avid musician who discovered his passion and appreciation for music at a very young age and a current instructor at McNally Smith College of Music, Mabbott says that enhancing The Hideaway Studio’s internship program is a by-product of his love for music and education.
“I have always wanted to enhance our internship program,” says Mabbott. “As an instructor, I see so many gifted music students everyday who are craving practical training and experience. The expansion of our internship program allows me to provide them with this platform and to play an active role in helping them cultivate their musical abilities.”
As part of the practical day-to-day experience with studio processes and operations, interns sit in and assist on recording sessions and engage in session set-ups and tear downs for tracking, which include miking, patching and Pro Tools operations. Additionally, students sit in on and observe mixing sessions and learn techniques for successful mixes.
In addition to working with interns from McNally Smith College of Music, The Hideaway Studio is also trying to recruit interns from other music colleges, including Mabbott’s alma mater, The Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences. He can be contacted directly at [email protected].
