Work Experience at Fine Music 102.5
My week of work experience with Fine Music was so enjoyable it didn’t feel like ‘work’ at all. Throughout the week I met radio presenters, vocal trainers, programmers and musicians. During the day they guided me through activities which allowed me to experience different areas of the radio station. I learnt how to use and speak into the microphone, digitally edit and create my own programs, catalogue CDs and even got to speak on air. I was constantly amazed at the extensive music library and technical equipment.
Every person at Fine Music was very generous with their time and knowledge, and their love for music was very evident. This experience gave me an incredible insight on the dedication and passion put towards running the station. I finished the week at Fine Music with a much stronger appreciation for classical music and radio. Working at Fine Music exposed me to many new composers, pieces and genres. The hands-on activities using editing and recording software allowed me to extend my knowledge and interest towards multimedia. My time at Fine Music was a very valuable experience I will never forget.
