The first BassLessons.com Scholarship was awarded to Tyree Lindsey and Ben Drake, both from the jazz department at the University of Texas at Arlington. Each player received $100.
The scholarship is presented to a bass player attending college who is also planning to perform professionally. The award was split between these two fine bassists, both of whom perform in UTA's 2 jazz ensembles.
The scholarship is funded by Jewel Publications, publisher of "Essential Music Theory For Electric Bass", and also sponsor of a network of bass sites that include basslinks.com, electricbass.com, basslessons.com, and acousticbass.com. It is also presented in memory of Curtis Winter.
To apply for the next award to be given away in Fall 2002, send a 3-song tape or cd no longer than 5 minutes in length, along with academic plans and professional goals to:
P.O. Box 38641
Dallas, Texas 75238
Congratulations to Tyree and Ben!
