MELODIC SOLOING GUITAR SCHOLARSHIP
The Melodic Soloing Scholarship was created to recognize and support the creative skills, talent, tone and taste required to play improvised melodic guitar solos in any style. The scholarship is generously funded by an MI Guitar Program alumnus (GIT class of 1980) and is provided to encourage and support the educational growth of an Associate of Arts (Guitar) program student.
The scholarship is awarded every spring and fall to a newly enrolling and current/returning guitar student who demonstrates outstanding musicianship, and expresses their own unique melodic voice as a soloist on the instrument in any musical style.
