Announcing the Charly Gienau Memorial Alternative Rock Guitar Scholarship at Musicians Institute. Seeking Donations Now

Charly Gienau

MI alumni, Charly Gienau, was killed early Sunday morning August 29th, in a tragic hit and run accident near Downtown LA.  We have established the Charly Gienau Memorial Alternative Rock Guitar Scholarship Fund at Musicians Institute in honor of her creative spirit and legacy as a musical artist. 

She was a 2008 graduate of MI’s Guitar Program (GIT) and attended MI’s Audio Engineering Program in 2012. She was the founder and lead singer of the band “mANY oF oDD nATURE”, music was her passion.

Please support the scholarship in Charly’s honor by making a 100% tax-deductible donation (in any amount) thru our non-profit scholarship Foundation.   

You’ll get an instant IRS donation acknowledgement letter, and you can donate via Credit card, PayPal or ApplePay.  The scholarship will be awarded later this year to a talented and deserving Guitar Program student at MI who embodies genuine passion and creativity in the Alternative Rock genre.
