The 2012 Schecter Synyster Gates Guitar Scholarship at Musicians Institute, created to honor the successful career of GIT grad and Avenged Sevenfold guitarist Synyster Gates, has been awarded to Zach Jolicoeur.
Zach comes to MI from Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada and is entering the Associate of Arts in Performance (Guitar) Program having demonstrated outstanding musicianship in the rock genre.
While attending Musicians Institute, Zach will specifically focus on gaining the skills needed to “make the music I hear in my head” and to achieve his future career goal of “living my life immersed in music, that is success to me.”
Everyone at MI congratulates Zach 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 Zach with the support, tools and recognition they need to launch successful and creative careers in the music industry.
