Musicians Institute is pleased to announce that current MI student Andy Ferreira is the recipient of the Spring 2019  ESP Rock Guitar Scholarship.  Andy comes to MI’s Guitar Program from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil,  and brings a versatile array of playing skills with 20 years of guitar playing experience in the pop, blues, rock and jazz genres.

Andy shared a bit with us about his experience as a student at MI, “The most impactful experiences that I’ve had at MI involve being around teachers of the highest level I’ve seen in my life and also being able to delve into the best formatted curriculums I’ve ever come across. Add that to an environment of complete musical immersion along with great technological ease and you have the ultimate learning experience. Couldn’t be happier, this place is better than Disneyland!!”

He sees his education as an important key to achieving his dream of one day being able to “be recognized as an artistic voice, capable of embodying my own style in everything I do.”

Everyone at MI congratulates Andy on winning this prestigious scholarship award as he continues his studies at MI!
