Musicians Institute is pleased to announce that Jintao Yao is the recipient of the first-ever Takamine Acoustic Guitar Scholarship.  Jintao comes to MI’s Guitar Program from China with several years of fingerstyle guitar experience.

Jintao chose to study at MI because “this is the best school in California for music, I also hope to learn some rock styles while at MI.”   He described his future career aspirations as follows: “my dream is to make my own band and become famous!”

Everyone at MI congratulates Jintao on winning this prestigious scholarship award, and we welcome him as he begins his studies and the many great experiences ahead at MI!

Special thanks to our longtime industry partner, ESP and Takamine Guitars for generously sponsoring this scholarship, which helps to provide talented students like Jintao with the support, tools and recognition they need to launch successful careers in the music industry.
