Student Opportunities: Cook Classics (Beyoncé, Chris Brown) is Looking for Producers

We strive to give our students and alumni unique opportunities to get involved within the music industry. These opportunities come exclusively from our extensive network of industry contacts, and can range from DJ performance to internships and paid roles too. Scroll down to see what’s popping this week, and for those that want to access many more ongoing opportunities like this, you can find out all about our courses right here! Please remember – all of the opportunities detailed below are for PB students and alumni only.

Cook Classics (Beyoncé, Chris Brown) is Looking for Producers + Writers to Work With

Cook Classics is a successful American music producer, songwriter, and engineer currently based in Los Angeles. If you’re an up and coming producer or writer also based in LA, this could be an excellent opportunity for you to collaborate.

Depending on your skill level, the opportunities range from working with Cook Classics directly on production for signed artists to sending him tracks or track ideas that can be sent to songwriters and artists and then finish. Or if you are just starting out, it would be more of an internship at Cook’s studio to help develop them and give them experience.

It’s paid but based on performance, the same way Cook Classics gets paid. The ideal candidate should have experience producing music. He’s looking for creative producers and writers with good sonics, programming and musicianship.

If you’re interested, send an e-mail to The Beat Locker with links to your music, where you’re located, the software you use and the instruments you can play. Please remember, these opportunities are for PB students and alumni only.
