The Vocal Program at Musicians Institute is pleased to announce multi-talented vocalist Juan Acosta  as the winner of the W. Crane Guy Memorial Vocal Scholarship for fall 2013.  In winning this prestigious award, the Bogota, Colombia native demonstrated overall outstanding musicianship, strong vocal skills and the potential for developing his own unique voice.

Asked why he chose to study in the Vocal Program at MI, Juan states “I want to learn as much as I can from the teachers at MI. They will definitely help me learn more about performing and how to shape my style.”

He also shared that “My goal is to become someone important in “showbiz”. Not just as a musician or a performer; but as a human being, and I know I will achieve it with hard work!”

Everyone at MI congratulates Juan on winning this prestigious award that honors the memory and multiple talents of Musicians Institute alumnus W. Crane Guy (class of 2010); and supports the education of a talented vocal student.

Special heartfelt thanks to the family of W. Crane Guy for generously sponsoring this scholarship, which will help to provide students like Juan with the support, tools and recognition they need to launch successful and creative careers in the music industry.
