The MTRA faculty and staff are very open to developing relationships with local businesses. Internships can be mutually beneficial to employers and students. MTRA students have previously interned at Kuumbwa Jazz Center and Cabrillo Stage. We also partner with Universal Audio with our studios.
"During my time in the MTRA program and MRTAK, I was honored to have the opportunity to intern at Kuumbwa Jazz in Santa Cruz. The people that work there are incredibly nice, and are willing to work with whatever skill-level you are at. The engineers are experienced and have a wealth of knowledge that they are willing to share with you. Whether you just want to set up cables, mics, and amps, or if you want to learn how to mix the show, the engineers will appreciate the help. Kuumbwa is also very ﬂexible with how often you show up to help. I had a full time school schedule, worked part time, and was still able to get my hours in at Kuumbwa. This internship has helped me land multiple mixing and sound engineering gigs because of how established it is. If you're presented with the opportunity for this internship, take it."
