Jesse Groce with MI Music Business Chair, Stacy Turner
The Fall 2018 Universal Citywalk Hollywood Music Business Entrepreneur Scholarship has been awarded to Musicians Institute Music Business Program student: Jesse Groce. The Auburn, New Hampshire native earned the prestigious award with a strong articulation of his professional goals and demonstration of outstanding dedication to achieving a position in the music industry as an independent entrepreneur.
Describing his reasons for coming to Musicians Institute, Jesse states, “I chose to study at MI for many reasons. I like how the focus is on contemporary music, which gives MI an edge compared to other music conservatories and schools. The location of MI in Hollywood/LA is the best location for an artist.”
While at MI, Jesse will focus on “learning any business aspects that I am currently missing within my brand and scope of knowledge. I’m also looking forward to the hands-on experience, skills, and knowledge I will learn from the internships I will be participating in.”
He sees his education as an important key to achieving his career goals of being able to “live comfortably and support my family while doing something I am passionate about for my career. I also aspire to inspire others to do the same.”
Everyone at MI would like to congratulate Jesse on winning this prestigious award.
