The Drum Program at Musicians Institute is pleased to announce that versatile rock drummer Matthew Henke from Houston, Texas has been named the spring 2012 winner of the prestigious Evans Drumhead Scholarship.
During his studies at MI, Matthew plans to “expand my vocabulary and groove on the drum set. I’ll also be able to learn new styles and hone in my technique/style, while meeting fantastic musicians and dedicated people that hopefully I’ll be playing with for years to come. My dream for the future is to be involved with an original band making albums that I’m proud of.”
Everyone at MI congratulates Matthew on this achievement, which marks a great beginning to his studies. We look forward to seeing him reach his full potential while at MI.
Special thanks to our longtime industry partner, Evans Drumheads and The D’Addario Music Foundation for generously sponsoring this scholarship, which helps to provide talented students like Matthew with the support, tools and recognition they need to launch successful and creative careers in the music industry. Evans has been a pioneer in drumhead design for over 50 years and is a committed supporter and advocate of music education.
