Jovany Rico from Orange County, California has been named as the winner of the Musicians Institute 35th Anniversary Audio Engineering Program Scholarship for Spring 2013.

He comes to Musicians Institute with two years of experience and skill engineering music in his preferred styles of Electronic Dance Music, House, Trance, Progressive, and “you name it”.  When asked why he chose to study at MI, Jovany states: “I hope to learn a lot about recording, equipment, how to use the big control boards, use Logic and Pro Tools, mix and master tracks, and how to get a career in the music field (most importantly)”.

His future goals are “To make my dream of being a music producer a reality.  To learn, network, and become a music producer (making music for myself and for other artists.”

Jovany also shared that he “always had a interest in music technology, but when I found out you can make a living doing this, I jumped on board to find a place (MI) that would fit my needs and where I can learn and develop.”

Everyone at MI welcomes Jovany to the Audio Engineering Program, and congratulates him on winning this very prestigious award!

Special thanks to MI’s family of Alumni, whose generous donations fund this scholarship, which helps to provide talented students like Jovany with the support, tools and recognition they need to launch successful and creative careers in the music industry.
