Drum Program Chair Stewart Jean with Avinash Ramachandra

The Drum Program at Musicians Institute and The Musicians Foundation are pleased to announce that Avinash Ramachandra, progressive metal  drummer from Bangalore, India has been named the winner of the prestigious Evans Drumhead Scholarship for spring 2015.

Avinash will focus on “learning how to play  different forms of music and most importantly be a literate musician which is going to help me be a very versatile drummer” during his studies at MI. 

Upon receiving his scholarship award, Avinash acknowledged that he chose to study at MI because “of the quality of insanely talented teachers and most importantly; MI is in the heart of the music industry, this is where everything goes down…what better place to be!?”

His future professional goals are “to play for bands, go on tour and travel the world.  I want to record my own music and put out albums, and share my knowledge by teaching music in the future.

Everyone at MI congratulates Avinash 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 longtime industry partner, Evans Drumheads and The D’Addario Music Foundation for generously sponsoring this scholarship, which helps to provide talented students like Avinash with the support, tools and recognition they need to launch successful and creative careers in the music industry. 

Evans has been a pioneer in drumhead design for over 50 years and is a committed supporter and advocate of music education.
