The first objective I had when entering this internship was the most important one in my mind at the time. It was to become acclimated with more complex sound systems and to become fluent in mixing large bands while fine tuning my ear to a higher standard of music quality. This objective was my main goal because in the long-term vision of my own career this is what I want to work with, large bands in recording and live production of audio. I would become an asset to any audio production team if I am capable of creating a complex sound system from nothing. Not only to create it but if I am able to control it, quickly use it, and teach others how to use it, I would be able to be efficient in my field. I am positive that I accomplished this task in my internship.
After the completion of my internship, I knew I had to do more work and study to reach my goal of becoming a self-contained recording artist. I sought the assistance of Prof. Ko Esq. to learn more about copyright and licensing in entertainment law. In this independent study I wanted to become more knowledgeable regarding my rights as a recording artist and how to license the music I have produced. By the end of the semester, I created a functional contract that I will be able to use in the field to record group musicians and solo artists. My goal was accomplished. I know now how to protect both myself and my client from future litigation.
Michael Wilson, Director of Emmanuel Church Greenwood:
During Mr. Losey’s time onsite, Matthew was able to build a level of trust with us in his ability to perform at a very high level. This allowed me to be able to leave Matt at our main campus while I took key members of our team to the launch of our new campus. Matt demonstrated his ability to take a project from conception to completion. Many people are able to perform a certain function or task for a project, but not many people are able to take something from conception to completion. Matt was on time, neat and organized, cooperative, had an unbelievably positive attitude, great skills and knowledge. He was well liked by all members of the team.
