MI faculty member Chris Buzea (l.) with Julian Lee
The newly enrolling Bachelor’s Degree in Songwriting and Production Program (guitar) student comes to MI by way of Yakima, Washington, having composed original music primarily in the singer-songwriter, and acoustic genres.
Upon learning about his award, Julian explained that he chose to study at MI because “it seemed to be one of the best contemporary music schools around and it was affordable. I also like the variety of classes I can take.”
During his studies, he plans to focus on “refining my skills, learning new aspects of songwriting and music, and somehow combining everything into making a voice for myself. I want to eventually find my voice and my style of music to write upon graduation from MI.”
After MI, Julian’s primary career aspirations are to: “become a singer/songwriter! I would love to be able to be a creator as a job, and standing on stage would make me so happy. I want to make music, and then sing that music for people across the world, and show people my honest self – I hope someday I can do this and that people would appreciate and become inspired by it.”
Everyone at Musicians Institute congratulates Julian 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 MI’s Executive President, Histake Shibuya for generously sponsoring this scholarship, which helps to provide talented students like Julian with the support, tools and recognition they need to launch successful and creative careers in the music industry.
