Congratulations to Fall 2015 Steve Robinson Metal of Honor Veterans Scholarship winner Anthony Arocho.  The U.S. Navy veteran comes to Musicians Institute  from San Juan, Puerto Rico to enroll in the Audio Engineering Program at MI.  

Prior to starting his studies at MI, Anthony’s audio experience has included: “working with Reggaeton, EDM, R & B, Merengueton, ElectroFlow, Pop, just about anything that will lift your spirits, make you dance, make you fall in love, and make you feel alive.”

Asked why he chose to study Audio Engineering, Anthony states: “I hope to learn sound theory, recording techniques, how to mix and master, music business, musicianship, how to work around consoles, signal processing, basically everything that makes a great Audio Engineer.”  

He adds that his career goals and musical aspirations include “building my own recording studio and operating my own record label.  Also, I want to be able to help veterans like Mr. Robinson did, whether it may be financially, emotionally, or even physically; one of my main goals is to be there for my brothers and sisters.”

Everyone at MI congratulates Anthony 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 industry partner, Metal of Honor for generously sponsoring this scholarship, which helps to provide talented and deserving veterans like Anthony with the support, tools and recognition they need to launch successful careers in the music industry.
