Talented Blues-rock/Funk-rock guitarist and native of Chennai, India, W. Siddharth Srinivasan has been named as the winner of the spring 2013 Joe Bonamassa Blues Guitar Scholarship at Musicians Institute.

I strongly believe the people and opportunities here are something I require at this point in my life. I hope to become a better musician and performer, and to learn the skills required to be successful in the Music Industry.”
Siddharth sees his MI education as an important key to achieving his future dreams of being able to “work extensively with many musicians and focus on the live performance circuit, composing and songwriting, as well as work in the digital domain.”
