The Schecter Synyster Gates Guitar Scholarship, created to honor the successful career of GIT grad and Avenged Sevenfold guitarist Synyster Gates, has been awarded to Attila Voros.
Attila comes to Musicians Institute from Hungary and is entering the Associate of Arts in Performance (Guitar) Program having demonstrated outstanding musicianship in both rock and metal genres.
While attending Musicians Institute, Attila will specifically focus on expanding his knowledge of other styles and further develop his improvisational skills.
Attila’s future career goals include continued world touring (he’s already toured with Nevermore and other bands). Attila states: “I’d like to work hard to become a better songwriter and producer. I can’t imagine myself anywhere else than in the music business as a guitarist, songwriter, and to eventually become a professional producer.”
Everyone at MI congratulates Attila on winning this prestigious award that honors both the growing legacy and career of a Guitar Program alumnus (Synyster Gates) and supports the education and of a talented, evolving, and very deserving rock guitarist!
Special thanks to our longtime industry partner, Schecter Guitar Research for generously sponsoring this scholarship, which helps to provide talented students like Attila with the support, tools and recognition they need to launch successful and creative careers in the music industry.
