Talented guitarist Jeonghun Kang has been named as winner of the Spring 2016 D’Addario Guitar Scholarship. Coming to Musicians Institute from South Korea, he brings seven years of playing experience in Heavy Metal and Rock styles.

Jeonghun decided to attend MI’s Guitar Program in order to “learn techniques, live performance experience, improvising in any genre, and methods for composing original licks and songs. He added “I chose MI because my favorite musicians have graduated MI, and the school has a high student satisfaction”.

He sees these skills as an important key to achieving his goal of being able to “perform like Andy James, Andy Wood, Marco Sfogli, and play in a Rock band.”

Everyone at MI welcomes Jeonghun to the Guitar Program at MI, and congratulates him on winning this very prestigious award!

Special thanks to our longtime industry partner, D’Addario Strings and The D’Addario Music Foundation for generously sponsoring this scholarship, which helps to provide talented students like Jeonghun with the support, tools and recognition they need to launch successful and creative careers in the music industry.
