The fall 2012 Hollywood Chamber of Commerce Community Foundation Vocal Scholarship has been awarded to Leila Pedraza.
The San Diego, CA native is entering the Associate of Arts in Performance (Vocal) program at MI having clearly articulated her career goals in the written essay for the HCCCF scholarship award.
In addition to her vocal skills, Leila also plays guitar and piano, and she is passionate about her goals to “develop and create my own unique sound, make a difference with my music, touch people, and inspire them.”
She chose to attend Musicians Institute because “It’s been my dream for years to sell out stadiums internationally and be a performer and musician full time. I chose MI because it’s the perfect place to go to get the training and support needed to start that journey.”
Leila will receive a complete MI Vocal Program equipment package award:
Sennheiser e835 Microphone
Sennheiser HD201 Headphones
20 Ft. Male to Female XLR Cable with Adapter
Everyone at MI congratulates Leila on winning this prestigious award that supports the education and growth of talented, evolving, and very deserving vocalists!
