The second annual Mitch Faber Memorial Guitar Scholarship, created to honor the memory, talent and artistic career of GIT grad Mitch Faber (class of 1981), has been awarded to Brad Tallman.
Brad hails from Salt Lake City, Utah and is entering the Associate of Arts in Performance (Guitar) program at Musicians Institute having demonstrated outstanding musicianship and the potential for developing a unique voice in the blues style.
While attending Musicians Institute, Brad will focus on expanding both his musical knowledge and developing professional connections in the music industry. Brad states: “I am going to MI as a student, and I can’t wait to learn all that I can from some of the world’s best music instructors. I’m also attending MI as a business-oriented artist. I want to make the connections and earn the jobs that MI has to offer its students.”
Brad is confident that the skills he will gain at MI will help him to attain his life goal as a musician to “become a well-known (and well-paid) singer/songwriter and guitarist. My overall musical aspiration is to be an independent artist that does everything– plays guitar, sings, and writes and performs the songs”.
Everyone at MI congratulates Brad on winning this prestigious award that honors both the legacy and career of a Guitar Program alumnus (Mitch Faber) and supports the education and growth of a talented, evolving, and very deserving blues guitarist!
