“My time at Studio 117 has given me insight and experiences in the industry that my college could never offer. From attending business meetings to working with real clients, Studio 117 has exposed to me to all aspects of being in the music business. Not only that, their attentiveness to my learning experience has allowed me to grasp technical concepts and techniques that I was unable to learn on my own. Every time I am excited to know that I will have learned something new by the time I walk out. I consider Studio 117’s role in my music career to be critical, as I would not be where I am today without them.”
-Alex Marshall (Harrisburg Area Community College)
I can't explain how much this internship has exposed me to, how much it has helped me grow as an artist and as a man. Thank you so much! Thank you for making me feel like i'm part of the team, and giving me the opportunity to do an internship like this!
-Phillip Douglass (Red Lion Area High School)
"Studio 117 has given me an incredible experience and skills that I will carry throughout the rest of my life. Not only have I learned skills in regards to music, but Lee and Dell have pushed me to always work hard, always put my best foot forward, always be open to new ideas, and to always strive to achieve the best possible end goal. Lee and Dell have given me opportunities to be apart of real life situations, work with artists, attend studio and client meetings, make my own work schedule, and given me the opportunity to pioneer new aspects of the company and take charge of things i'd never done before. They have been incredible mentors and have given me many opportunities that my college could never give me, and I will always see them as mentors and friends."
-Noah Jensen (York College of Pennsylvania)
“Studio 117 has given me such a drive and an enthusiastic passion for helping others with their music needs. From education, to recording clientele, I’ve received quite the hands on practical experience and feel comfortable in the industry, no matter where I go. Lee and Dell have allowed me to be creative and free with my passion and I wouldn’t want to feed and grow that passion anywhere else.”
-Michael DiPuppo (York College of Pennsylvania)
“Thank you so much for your time and the opportunity you have provided me at Studio 117. From my time here I've most enjoyed the valuable lessons I've learned about the industry that I plan to pursue a career in.
This internship experience has completely flipped my career plan on its head. Going in, I had no idea what rout to take and most likely would have ended up at a 4-year school right out of high school with no clear direction. Now, I plan to take a year to pursue this internship and gain as much knowledge as possible before taking on the music industry at Drexel University.”
-Jackson K Marino (Central York High School)
My internship at Studio 117 has truly been an eye-opening experience. Working with Lee and Dell has had an incredible impact on my production skills and understanding of the music industry. Furthermore, I couldn’t be more grateful to be apart of a team that motivates and strengthens our local community.
Tim Miller (Studio 117 Music Technician)
“My internship at Studio 117 has been a great one! From learning more about the business side, to working with clients, to understanding the importance of relationships, to developing skills on music production for a professional sound. Our Mentors where always eager and ready to answer any questions that inspired us to keep pushing with our creativity and to work as a team. I would highly recommend Studio 117 to anybody who wants to “up their game” and gain more knowledge in music production.“
