The Drum Program at Musicians Institute is pleased to announce that versatile rock drummer Karl Boudreaux from Baton Rouge, Louisiana has been named the winner of the prestigious Evans Drumhead Scholarship for fall 2012.
While he already has 22 years of live performance experience prior to enrolling at MI, Karl will focus on learning “how to position myself and market myself to have a full time career as a drummer” during his studies at MI.
Upon learning of his scholarship award, Karl acknowledged that “attending MI has always been one of my dreams and now it’s becoming a reality.” His future goals are clear, “I want a career in music as a drummer, to tour or do studio work.”
Everyone at MI congratulates Karl 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 Karl with the support, tools and recognition they need to launch successful and creative careers in the music industry.
