Hey guys, im in the process of looking for colleges or trade schools to go to and am considering attending M.I which is the the school Paul Gilbert attended. So I was wondering if anybody on here had any reviews or advice about the place?

Thnx guys.

that's a place where you don't really go to become awesome; you go there because you are already awesome and you want to be even more...if you think you are proficient enough with the guitar then try it, but only the best can make it, so make sure you are ready.

I went to GIT


I don't recommend it. Sorry, I know thats not what you want to hear.


I recommend going to a university for music, and/or the school of experience.

Based on my experiences with 3 different schools (community college, university, & GIT), I found GIT to be a poor educational experience. I have plenty of other reasons, but I think that is the most relevant.

Id seriously recomend berklee or belmont (which is a university with an awesome contemporary music program) over MI (you hear alot of negative things about MI). However, school (especially music school) is a combination of solid private instruction, grounding in tradition and creativity. You can get 2/3s of that anywhere (though somewhere with a good classical, jazz and contemporary theory track would be best) and there are a lot of good private instructers. Im sure MI is better then alot of people say, but I would recomend applying to other schools as well, as what you want may well change senior year.

well, more accurately .... some people have a different opinion of it.

Unlike Berklee, for example, Musicians Institute is not a regionally accredited college. That means a MI degree is a vanity degree, it's not accredited. And most music college/university's music programs, that are fully accredited, don't bother with National Association of Schools of Music accreditation.

Having gone to GIT, I have to say I completely agree with this.

It does look cool on the brochure though, doesn't it.

It does! Super cool! Paul Gilbert!

I don't even know how I know about it, maybe from the American Guitar Magazines they sell down under.
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.
