FALL 2017 BACHELOR OF MUSIC IN COMPOSITION SCHOLARSHIP WINNER: Nolan Sloan

Nolan Sloan with Dean of MI Bachelor’s Program Rachel Yoon

Guitarist Nolan Sloan is the winner of the third annual Bachelor of Music in Composition Scholarship at Musicians Institute.  The newly enrolling Bachelor’s Degree in Composition Program (Scoring for Visual Media) student comes to MI by way of Moses Lake, WA., having performed and composed music in the instrumental funk/fusion, acoustic singer/songwriter and rock genres. Nolan has been composing, editing and recording music for the past 6 years.

Upon learning about his award, Nolan explained that he chose to study at MI because “MI is located in the entertainment capital of the world, so opportunities for competent musicians abound (as much as they can for musicians), and all the instructors are experienced musicians, so I know I can trust any advice they would give me.”

During his studies, he plans to focus on “gaining a better ability to create songs, I would like to become better at writing funk and R&B songs.

After MI, Nolan’s career aspirations are to “become a great songwriter, performer, and musician so that I don’t have to do anything other than create and play music to make a living.”  

Everyone at Musicians Institute congratulates Nolan 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 The Musicians Foundation for generously sponsoring this scholarship, which helps to provide talented students like Nolan with the support, tools and recognition they need to launch successful and creative careers in the music industry.
