Guitar extraordinaire Steve Vai has officially announced the Vai Academy Song Evolution Camp set to take place from June 23 to 27 at the Gideon Putnam Resort in Saratoga Springs, New York.

Apart from Vai himself, the Academy will feature Guthrie Govan, Jeff "Skunk" Baxter, Vernon Reid and more special guests.

"If you are a lover of guitar and someone interested in an independent career in the music business, this is the place for you. One of the things you get to witness at this camp is the process of writing a song," Steve explained.

As the axeman further noted, the camp will focus on the entire songwriting process, going from the initial idea, through track construction, recording, producing, mixing, mastering, all the way to the final packaging and global distribution.

Check out the clip below, or visit the official website for more info. Prices vary from $800 to $2,999 per person.
