Program Description

The fellowship program of the Texas Music Office (TMO) in the Office of the Governor offers college students the opportunity to develop a working knowledge of the music industry. The TMO seeks students with excellent communication skills who want to learn how the music industry works, and who want to contribute to the TMO’s research, publishing and marketing efforts.

TMO fellowship recipients are required to work at least 10 (and as many as 30) hours each week researching and marketing Texas music businesses, events and talent. Responsibilities include: interviewing Texas music businesses owners; developing business statements based on these interviews; inputting information into the TMO’s databases using FileMaker Pro 11.0 software; responding to information requests from industry professionals and the general public; and researching Texas music on the web. Interns also assist TMO staff with administrative duties approximately 10 percent of the time. TMO fellowships are on a volunteer basis; interns do not receive any financial, housing, or transportation compensation or assistance.

The Texas Music Office is the information clearinghouse for the Texas music industry, and is the sister office to the Texas Film Commission. Annual TMO publications include the online Texas Music Industry Directory, the Texas Music Events Calendar, the Texas Recording and Production Guide, the Texas Music Education Primer, the Texas Music International Tip Sheet, the Texas Talent Register, and the Texas Music Bibliography. Fellowship recipients work closely with the TMO staff in assisting with these publications, and your work is credited in perpetuity on the TMO website EnjoyTexasMusic.com.

Getting started in the Texas music business isn’t easy. TMO fellowships are an excellent way to become aware of important professional contacts who make music their business.
