Catherine Filene Shouse Fellow - Post Graduate Internship

2014-2015

drewCongratulations to ALP alumni Andrew Worden!

Drew, who will be based in Rochester, NY, was awarded ALP post graduate funding for his role as UHS Health Promotion for Musicians Intern/Specialist for the University of Rochester University Health Services (UHS) for the 2014-2015 academic year. Drew received his MM degree (Performance and Literature, Percussion) and Arts Leadership certificate from Eastman in 2014. In his time at Eastman, Drew completed Arts Leadership Program internships during the academic year with UHS, and a summer internship with Third Coast Percussion in Chicago.

Drew is co-founder of the group Erasable Color, and was a finalist with the Eastman Institute for Music Leadership's New Venture Challenge in 2014. He was Co-artistic director of Sound ExChange in 2013-2014, and has participated in a number of summer percussion programs including the SO Percussion Summer Institute.

With UHS, Drew’s responsibilities will build on some of the projects he became involved with in the previous year. He will continue to work with UHS Physical Therapists, doctors and health promotion administrators to develop wellness practices and appropriate distribution channels for musicians. These will include a mobile app called "The Healthy Musician," an online occupational health and safety learning environment for music students eBook, and a second mobile app called "MuMo Screen." This will be a predictive musician's movement screening tool, utilizing the photo and video capabilities of a smartphone or table to aid musicians in recognizing potentially at-risk situations and incorporating intervention strategies into a daily routine.

ALP current students are eligible to apply for paid academic year internships. The Internship Program places ALP certificate candidates in internships designed to expose them to extra-musical tools and information that can only be learned in practical, “real world” settings. Benefits to the student include the cultivation of self-management skills and an awareness of the current climate for the arts in America. Those who participate in an internship will be better able to achieve their full potential as leading composers, performers, scholars, teachers, arts managers, and advocates of music of quality. Read more about ALP academic year internships here.
