Keeping The Blues Alive Sponsors Musicians Institute Scholarships

The Joe Bonamassa Blues Guitar Scholarship at Musicians Institute Announced!

The Musicians Foundation and Musicians Institute College of Contemporary Music are proud to announce the first-ever Joe Bonamassa Blues Guitar Scholarship at MI.

J&R Adventures collaborated with Keeping The Blues Alive to fund the first music education scholarship. The goal is to use this experience as an example and inspire others to show their support by donating to the Foundation.

The Joe Bonamassa Blues Guitar Scholarship at Musicians Institute was created thru the generous support of the award-winning guitarist through his Keeping the Blues Alive Foundation to provide opportunities for talented, emerging musicians to further their education, realize their own creative vision and support the vital legacy of the blues.

The $3,000 scholarship (tuition credit) will be awarded in Spring 2013 to a newly enrolling intermediate or advanced student (US or non-US citizens) in the Associate of Arts in Performance (Guitar) Program at MI who demonstrates overall outstanding musicianship, and the potential for developing their own individual sound or unique voice on the instrument in the blues genre. Two tickets and VIP backstage “meet and greet” to a future Joe Bonamassa concert (date/time TBD) are also included in the award package.

The deadline to apply for the scholarship is March 1, 2013.
