Sorry for the delay in responding your query. I overlooked the initial email notifying me of your message.
In the first instance begin networking, so you get a sense of the different roles and opportunities that are in the music industry and build contacts in the sector. Networking includes face-to-face meetings as well as connecting to different organisations that support the music industry. Subscribe to their newsletters, follow them on social media, so you are kept up to date on sector news.
Good networks to consider are:
Young Guns, https://www.facebook.com/younggunsnetwork/
The Big Music Project: http://www.thebigmusicproject.co.uk/what-is-the-big-music-project/
Urban Development: http://www.urbandevelopment.co.uk/
UK Music: http://www.ukmusic.org/skills-academy/careers-advice/
There is also the apprenticeship route, which combines a mixture of on the job training with practical experience. In this instance have a look at the Find an Apprenticeship website for details on apprenticeship roles in the music industry. https://www.gov.uk/apply-apprenticeship Apprenticeships are open to those aged 16 and above who have the right to work in the UK. From 1st May, graduates became eligible to apply for an apprenticeship. The major labels all have their own internship programmes, which are advertised on their individual websites.
Hope this helps you get started!
