Amazing college great people super friendly and everyone gets along really well. You learn so much and its very applicable everywhere. Someone is always playing music and everyone just enjoys playing so much and are very supportive of each other. Best environment for a musician


It's an expensive school , but very good at what they do. They showed me there is so many ways to do things involving my voice and my skills in the school. they have private lesson rooms and also private studio time. With the live band practice they use to the one on one class they offer its all great and Im grateful I've learned.


A school where you will meet good people who are interested in working with music. The school is a nice community of students that are willing to be serious about music. The tuition is pretty costly but the teachers and the knowledge and connections that you gain make it worth it.


I love it here at Musicians Institute! The only bad reviews you ever hear about this school are the ones from people who never did a thing to get out there in the music world. The school is not only a music school, but a community where you can network with other people in the music business and make connections! If you're serious about getting into the music world, whether it be performance or business, make it happen! Get out there and make friends and connections and you will not regret coming to this school!

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    If i could talk to myself as a high school senior with the knowledge and experience i have now, the [senior] me would definitely be a sceptic of what [now] me was telling him - but i would promise him that my advice would work...just as it will work for anyone else that wishes to lend an ear. I would tell myself to focus on the present, not the past or the future. That is not to say disregard the future completely, just acknowledge that i don't have control over it. What i have control over is the NOW, and what i do NOW controls what happens later. I would assure myself that no matter how scary the unknown of the future is, if i do what i can NOW, to prepare myself for THEN, things will all work out. Life is about balance, and so no matter how stressed i got working toward college and making the transition, i would tell myself to take a break, appreciate the NOW, be happy, and know that things will all work out in the end...because if you know they will, then they will.

    There are not enough drum practice-rooms for the amount of students that want to practice regularly. While everyone DOES get their practice time in, it's sometimes hard to get ample time when you need it, when you have to share with up to 5 people.

  7. What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

    The students individually stands out, in clothing, head upright, and we are not scared of the world coming at us, actually I'm terrified, I want to be the best. We are serious about the gift we have been given and work hard to be who we are and where we want to go, that is of course, becoming a star in our own world. We are aware we may stand out. But then, our student ID must show. When people notice our status, instead of freaks that some might stenotype us, people stop the judgmental stereotype and smile, even stop and talk. I guess people feel we are wasting time and we are freaks, but something changes when people see your an MI student.
