Sample cover letter for Internship position at Third Side Music
I am highly interested to be a music intern during the summer of 2015. This past year, I had the amazing
opportunity to assist Canadian composer Joe Barrucco on Shelby (2014), a globally distributed Christmas movie
directed by Emmy winner Brian K. Roberts, starring Chevy Chase, Rob Schneider, and Tom Arnold. As the
assistant composer, I helped develop character themes, composed about a third of the music cues, and joined
ASCAP to receive future royalties. Currently in my junior year of university, I am eager and passionate to join the
most successful fourth television network to not only contribute my music expertise, but to also continue
developing my foundation necessary to lead a successful career in the entertainment industry.
Interning with Fox Network would be a significant milestone and honor as I would be given the tools and
resources to learn all about the fundamentals of the music business in a professional setting. In addition, Fox
Network’s strong international presence is something I admire due to the large influence it has in numerous
countries including Canada and France. This is quite important to me because as a French citizen and United
States permanent resident studying in Canada, I am continuously looking for ways to improve my global
experience in order to be better equipped for the future. In result, it would allow me to better contribute to Fox
Network’s added value and growth in both the American and European continents.
Apart from my work in composition, my current work in performance and teaching has significantly
strengthened my skills in time management and organization. On a weekly basis, I meet with singer/songwriter
Amanda Rowland, a previous finalist on The Next Star (YTV Canada), to record and prepare material for
upcoming shows. I also prepare and teach private piano lessons with emphasis on technique and basic music
theory. As a promotional model, I have enriched my leadership and customer service by representing over a dozen
brands in the past year. Fox Network was actually a client I represented last summer to promote their new comedy
series at the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal. As team leader, it was my responsibility to set up the activation,
manage two other brand ambassadors, and report the daily logistics back to the head manager.
My work and education have not only helped me grow as a well-rounded individual, but have both also
prepared me to take the next steps in my career. Given my motivation and perseverance, I am confident I will be a
dynamic and productive music intern at Fox Network. Thank you so much for this great opportunity and I highly
look forward to your response! I am available for an interview at the time of your convenience.
