The winner of the fall 2012 Seymour Duncan Bass Scholarship is Aaron Williams, who comes to Musicians Institute from Durango, Colorado armed with a serious dedication for the bass and a passion for jazz-fusion.

Upon learning about his award, Aaron states “Thank you very much for the opportunity and the reward. Bass playing is my passion, and I am very excited to see my dreams unfold right in front of my eyes.”

Aaron explains that he chose to study in the Bass Program at MI because “I love the location, the school, and the teachers. It is 100% professional. I believe MI is the only way to start my dreams off on the right path.”  He also will focus on “improving my bass technique, music theory, and sight reading while taking advantage of career counseling services, and playing as much music as I can!”

Everyone at MI congratulates Aaron 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 very special industry partner, Seymour Duncan for generously sponsoring this scholarship, which helps to provide talented students like Aaron with the support, tools and recognition they need to launch successful and creative careers in the music industry. The scholarship was created thru the generous support of Seymour Duncan Pickups and Pedals to honor innovative guitar legend Seymour Duncan.
