Lina Elina Anderberg

The Drum Program at Musicians Institute and The Musicians Foundation are pleased to announce that Lina Elina Anderberg, (who comes to MI by way of Sweden) has been named the winner of the prestigious Evans Drumhead Scholarship for spring 2020.

The multi-stylistic drummer (pop, funk/soul, hybrid) has been playing and performing for the past 7 years. When asked to share her thoughts about receiving this scholarship award, Lina stated: “This scholarship literally means everything to me, financially but it’s also an acknowledgement that all my hours in the practice rooms pay off, and I’m motivated to keep up the speed and energy!”

During her studies, she plans to focus on “my reading, learning more about rudiments, technique, and improving my theory/ear training skills”.

Lina acknowledged that she chose to study at Musicians Institute because “I’ve been wanting to be a student at MI since I started to play drums.  I have many friends that went to MI, and I’ve heard so many positive things about this school. There are many talented students here from all over the world, and I can get so much knowledge and inspiration from people here. I wanted to take a huge step in my education, and I chose MI because I feel like I can develop my musical skills the way I want to, and I also have all the opportunities to learn other instruments and programs like Ableton at MI.”

She described her future professional goals as follows: “my goal is to be on tour all over the world and have a dope drum tech!”

Everyone at MI congratulates Lina on this achievement. We look forward to seeing her reach her full potential while at MI.
