re: the "Assistant Tour Manager" internship question- this is actually something I've been offered before for an international group doing their first US tour (I wasn't able to go on the tour because of the job I was working at the time). I was offered the position 100% because of a connection I had (their manager) and he knew my work ethic and ability to learn things on the fly. It's definitely a potential opportunity if you meet people, work hard, and target the right (probably smaller) tours.

thanks!

Have you heard of someone interning as an assistant tour manager? Like not getting paid to do it, but coming out for the summer, or on any tour, to learn what to do and how to do it?

I haven’t heard of this. To my knowledge, usually if a TM feels as though they need an assistant, they will pay somebody to join the staff. By paying somebody, they can get someone who has more experience who will be able to better assist.

Man Natalie I feel like you're a broken record. I know it's hard but people need to realize that if you want something you need to go out and get it and research stuff! Things aren't going to get handed to you and there's no book on how to get in the music industry. If people are looking for a simple answer then I'm not sure if they truly want it that much. I give you props for taking your time to answer people's questions and helping them. I hope whatever career goals you're striving for happen

Yo it’s all good. I don’t mind answering people’s questions at all. If questions get super repetitive, I just won’t respond. Our community over here is generally fairly young, so not everybody has learned to go out and look for things on their own just yet, and I’m understanding about that. 

I do agree though— back in the day, if something interested me, I just went for it. 

The amount of people that ask questions that can easily be answered by just Googling are insane. This is the music industry! No one can get you a job or tell you exactly how to get one yourself. Research and connections are imperative! Go out and make something happen. Don't look to Natalie for all of your answers; find them yourself!

Thanks man. I couldn’t agree with this more. I love everyone on here, but my purpose is not to give you all of the answers. I can help guide you, but it’s true, a lot can be learned just by looking around on the internet.
