ESP Guitar Scholarship Winner James William Sanders

James William Sanders with Guitar Program Chair, Jude Gold

The winner of the spring 2012 ESP Guitar Scholarship at Musicians Institute is James William Sanders from Burlington, North Carolina.  

James comes to MI already in possession of a significant rock, funk and jam-oriented vocabulary as well as the technique and musicality to take home this spring’s ESP Guitar award.

James chose to study at MI in order to “further my musical repertoire and study new genres. Music is the only thing in life I can truly put my entire being into, and MI is the only school I’ve found that would help me become the musician I want to be.”

We congratulate James on this achievement, which marks a great beginning to his studies, and we look forward to seeing him reach his full potential while at MI!

Special thanks to our longtime industry partner, ESP Guitars for generously sponsoring this scholarship, which helps to provide talented students like James with the support, tools and recognition they need to launch successful careers in the music industry.
