Music Publishing Intern

May 2020 - August 2020 Memphis, TN
“I really enjoyed the exposure to the many different overarching fields within the music industry such as music publishing, sync licensing, and music business. It was nice to have the opportunity and space to dive deeper into these topics, especially with being an independent artist myself, and needing to know the behind the scenes. It was great to learn of so many other sources of revenue and how to change and adapt through trying times in the industry in relations to the time. ”
