Steve Vai Guitar Scholarship at MI Application Deadline is Aug. 24, 2012!


“A formal music education can completely change an aspiring musician’s creative overview. Understanding the language of music can expand their musical vocabulary and offer the ability to “dimensionalize” their vision. Surrounding yourself with other musicians and sharing the experience of creating music in a complete artistic environment is perhaps the most valuable education for any young musician.”    Steve Vai
