Applying your knowledge in real-world situations

Mystery Street Recording Company offers an immersive internship program that demonstrates nearly all aspects of studio operations. Our goal is to bridge the gap between formal education and real-world experiences.

As an intern you’ll work directly with experienced audio engineers to gain hands-on experience.  For 15 weeks each spring, summer, and fall, interns interact with our engineers to learn, collaborate, and contribute at Chicago’s top rated recording studio.
