What other students are saying
“Interning at Symphonic was an unforgettable experience. Everyone there is not only incredibly knowledgable about the industry but also really down to earth. It’s not only a one stop shop for their clients but also for their interns I got to learn about all the different aspects to the music industry from publishing and licensing to marketing and sales. Also everyone their just loves music so its just all around a great place to work, listen and learn. I definitely recommend it to anyone who is really looking to learn all they can about the music industry.”
“In the fall of 2014 I had the opportunity to do a four month unpaid media internship at Symphonic Distribution, which was perfect for me. Their team works in an office with a modern and colorful interior design, which is inspiring to work at. It is located in Wesley Chapel, close to Tampa, FL.
First of all I loved the down-to-earth and friendly work atmosphere at the office, which made you feel like an equal part of the team. Secondly they were very helpful and patient with any necessary paperwork I needed to get school credit etc. But most importantly I learned a lot about working in a healthy medium sized company with good communication, and where passion and honesty automatically makes you want to work hard. It’s the kind of company structure I wish to help run some day.
My work was planned according to my skills and passions so I was never bored. I was given responsibility, and if I needed to learn something I didn’t know, I was happily assisted, helped and taught.
My work consisted of creating media content for their music blog Noiseporn.com and helping with other media and event projects that Symphonic Distribution was involved with. For the blog I wrote music reviews, news articles and personal article ideas. I also helped produce a handful of artist interviews mixed with concert/gig footage. And lastly I helped plan and produce social media content for a local music event in St. Petersburg which Symphonic sponsored.
I can highly recommend this place for an internship to someone who is outgoing and passionate about music distribution and creative media content production.”
“I absolutely loved interning at Symphonic Distribution, the staff is amazing and the office has a great open and friendly vibe. Everyone is willing to give you insight to what they do and to help you understand the industry and its different areas. I was lucky to gain a great deal of marketing experience as well as getting to do some public relations work. The best aspect though was that I wasn’t making copies or getting coffee, I got to do real hands-on work and learn the ropes.”
