    Hello Fellow PAS Members:

    For over 50 years, Yamaha has been committed to music education and career training and development in the United States. Therefore, I’m pleased to announce that Yamaha Corporation of America is once again seeking talented and accomplished applicants for our world-class percussion internship program.

    Our next intern will gain invaluable music product industry experience, while providing marketing and artist relations support to Yamaha here in the percussion department of the Yamaha Band & Orchestral division in Buena Park, California. The intern selected for this engagement will also help the company present our new products this January at the company’s massive presence at The NAMM Show, the world’s preeminent music product tradeshow. For anyone starting out in the music products industry, this represents an exciting opportunity to work with the world’s largest music product manufacturer at one of the world’s largest tradeshows.

    We’ll be considering currently enrolled college students and recent graduates with a music business, music education, or arts management background. While knowledge of a musical instrument is helpful, it’s not required for this role. This is a paid internship that runs through late Winter and into early Spring.

    Several former Yamaha interns now hold fruitful positions within Yamaha, as well as throughout the music products industry, including at instrument manufacturers, music dealers, drum & bugle corps, media and other music education outlets.

    This internship is sure to be rich with unique experiences and learning opportunities. If you know of anyone who might be a good fit, please encourage them to apply at this link: Thank you!
