Jia-Ming Tsai

Musicians Institute and The Musicians Foundation are pleased to announce that talented guitarist Jia-Ming Tsai is the recipient of the prestigious 2022 Takamine Acoustic Guitar Scholarship.  

Jia-Ming comes to MI’s Guitar Program from Taiwan with ten years of guitar playing and performing experience in multiple genres and a specialization in Pop and Rock styles.

Jia-Ming shared that his areas of interest during his studies include: “I want to learn Jazz the most, but also want to learn many other styles, perform on stage and jam with people at MI!”

When asked “what does winning this scholarship award mean to you”?  Jia-Ming shared “It encouraged me a lot to win an acoustic guitar scholarship! Although I play electric guitar the most, but I also really love the acoustic guitar, and I had the opportunity to play a lot of gigs with a vocalist in Taiwan. “One vocal + one acoustic guitar” duo format sounds really good to me and I enjoy that a lot.”

He sees his MI education as an important key to achieving his dream of one day being able to “be a session player, have a band and write some original songs.”

Everyone at MI congratulates Jia-Ming on winning this prestigious scholarship award, as he continues his studies at MI!
