Looking for studio for internship

    Hi,
    I'm 16, and I'm considering writing a story about The Recording Kid, and his adventures trying to create professional-sounding music with a consumer computer, a garage with no acoustics and horrible equipment all while battling his arch-enemies, The Unsupporting Father and High-Priced Electronics with his sidekick Mr. Weekly Allowance and Mini-mum Wage Job. Definately a losing battle.

    All jokes aside, I'm looking to intern with, or at least sit beside and gaze at, a studio engineer or recordist that works a professional recording studio. I live in maryland--I've been searching all over, but I was wondering if there was some sort of recording studio directory. Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks.

    Ben

    Yellow book?

    Seriously, look in your local yellow book and call the studios around your area. You have to show motivation in getting the job. I doubt anyone will let you come in and "gaze" at the console with out being any help.

    I can't recommend that highly enough..
    I learned everything I know (which admittedly is never enough) from interning at a studio while in college.

    I went around to all the local studios and basically begged.
    It also helped that I knew how to fix computers (which was a rare talent back when I was in college) which got me in the door.

    thanks! i didn't realize the yellow pages were that specific with a section labeled "recording studios", but alas...
    Here's what i found to be the most prominent...
    A Morphius MFG Morphius Records Inc
    Cloud 9 Recording Studios
    Invisible Sound Studios Inc
    Pure Sound Recording Studios

    Any of those sound familiar? Believe it or not the last one offers a class that seems right up my alley.
