Benjamin A. Collenberg with Paul Roberts (Guitar Craft Academy Program Chair)

The winner of the fall 2014 Seymour Duncan Guitar Craft Academy Scholarship is Benjamin A. Collenberg.  The Anaheim Hills, CA native explains that he decide to study at MI’s Guitar Craft Academy  because “I have been interested in building and repairing guitars for the last 5 years.” He also adds “I chose MI because it’s a great, well rounded school, and the staff is amazing.”

While at Musicians Institute, Benjamin intends to “learn how to fully build and repair guitars and basses along with business management and guitar performance.” His long term goals are “to own my own guitar and bass company, also to be able to have a steady focused base of knowledge in business.”

Everyone at MI congratulates Benjamin 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 very special industry partner, Seymour Duncan for generously sponsoring this scholarship, which helps to provide talented students like Benjamin with the support, tools and recognition they need to launch successful and creative careers in the music industry.  The scholarship was created thru the generous support of Seymour Duncan Pickups and Pedals to honor innovative guitar legend Seymour Duncan.
