(l.) Stig Mathisen (Guitar Program Chair) with Shuo Zhang  (rt.)

The winner of the spring 2018 Seymour Duncan Guitar Scholarship at Musicians Institute is the talented Shuo Zhang who comes to MI from China.  The classic rock and blues guitar specialist explains that he chose to study in MI’s Guitar Program because “MI provides great resources and a great music environment, especially for modern music.  I look forward to making new friends who cherish the same ideals and follow the same path.   Also, so many musicians come to LA to chase their dreams; it’s the city of music in my heart.”

While at MI, he will focus on “improving my guitar technique and to practice harder and harder.  I know that if I want to be a musician, I can’t just play guitar. So I want to learn everything about modern music.”

Shou describes his longterm goals and aspirations as follows : “I want to make music be my career.”

Everyone at MI congratulates Shou 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 very special industry partner, Seymour Duncan for generously sponsoring this scholarship, which helps to provide talented students like Shou with the support, tools and recognition they need to launch successful and creative careers in the music industry. The scholarship was created thru the generous support of Seymour Duncan Pickups and Pedals to honor innovative guitar legend Seymour Duncan.
