They are what you make of it, you get what you put in. If you find online classes to be easier for you and your lifestyle then go for it, I'd recommend going to class and interacting personally with students, but online classes here at MI are still worth the money.

I've been to three colleges so far, this being my third. And I must say that the flexibility as not only a working student but as a professional entertainer is amazing. They will work with you, and make a way all the time!

There are so many unique things about the Musicians Institute. Its honestly, what you make of it. You get what you put in. All the resources are there at your grasp. Everything's up to date, and you'll always want to learn more. The knowledge and networking never ends!

I love all the resources available. In this school everything is at your reach. The library is full of information, and technology to get you through your day. They have recording studios, practice rooms, dance studios. Everything and anything you'll need or want. They definitely have. I absolutely love this school.

I chose this school because it's a school that revolves around contemporary music. Music is constantly changing and this school recognizes that. They help you succeed in the real world from the first day you start. They're not only training you in your musicianship, but also your ability to succeed in the competitive world of music.

Again, I haven't yet attended the school. I was excited to be able to tour the classrooms and through reading the MI manual, I feel that the courses offered will be beneficial.

I haven't actually started the school, yet. I begin in January of 2013. As far as I can tell, this is going to be a great opportunity for me.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
Though our the tuition has been raised and the school is accepting thousands more students I have yet to see any improvement to the facilities. The low number of available scholarships is lame.

Wireless in every building is nice. Classrooms could use more outlets. printing at 10 cents a page sucks.
Recent Alumnus 2012-09-19T19:35:05Z
The practice rooms are decent, if a little frigid. The library is nice, but was better when we could print for free. The concert hall and the recording studios are top notch.
Recent Alumnus 2012-09-19T19:33:12Z
The availability of practice rooms 24 hours/day is great. The night time shuttle only goes 2 miles and I live farther than that.

Great Network System – The career center helps you a lot to get what you want, and the alumni system helps connect musicians all over. It really helps you get out there in the real world of music.

Everything You Need Is There. Musicians Institute is very technologically adept. It has to be in order to be a relevant music school in Hollywood. The school's library has iMacs at every desk where you can hook in and play along with songs that you're learning while looking up online. The internet speed is always good, plus wi-fi is readily available in all school buildings that you can log in to with a lap top or smart phone with ease and it's always reliable. Printing is available in the library, but it does cost 10 cents a page to print or copy. However, this is ok because there no longer is a printing/copying fee added to your tuition.

Assistance Is Everywhere. The faculty is very involved in hearing the student body out. Our class sizes are small, plus they have open counseling times where you can meet with them personally. I feel I really know each and every one of my instructors, which really enhances what I learn from them. As far as the curriculum goes, I know I've grown greatly as a musician during my two years at Musicians Institute. I've been exposed to many new styles that I couldn't previously play, plus there has been enough repetition and connectivity between the classes that concepts have been reinforced and absorbed. The class registration process was good when you met individually with someone, but now the school has shifted toward an online model. It's still very new, and there are a number of hiccups in the system because of the transition. In the end I've been able to get all the classes I want.

Open Minds and Open Ears. Overall, the school is wonderful. The teachers are incredibly knowledgeable and approachable, and the school provides open counseling sessions with them so that they're at your disposal. Occasionally there's a teacher that doesn't seem so prepared, but I get through that by studying harder. The curriculum is flexible in the fact that you can take most of the classes in any order you like. It's also great that the dean of the bachelor program holds meetings each quarter to gain feedback from the students on the curriculum. Many improvement have been made to certain classes in light of these meetings. I think that's invaluable.
Transferring credits was easy, although the school initially transferred a certain amount, then later called me in saying that three of the courses did not count. This occurred when the current dean took over for the now retired one.
One criticism I have of the financial aid department is that I wish they would alert you as to when your loan reimbursement check arrives.

I'm a current student, but I've already obtained work thanks to the artists and career services department at Musicians Institute. They constantly bring in the top musicians business people in the music industry to speak to us, put on clinics and even meet with us one and one. This is both open to students and alumni. Networking is fostered here like nowhere else.

Great Intentions – I think the Career Services at MI have great intentions, but they can only do so much for you. I have taken advantage of many of the things they offer, but the music industry is so challenging to get into that it's still all about who you know. It's a little nerve wracking because you spend thousands of dollars on your education and you can visit Career Services all you want, but at the end of the day, you can't really get a job through them, just advice.

Not Applicable – This is not applicable to me as I have never taken online courses through Musician's Institute. I am enrolled in the VIT program, where I attend classes in person at the school.

There Is Always Equipment and Facilities on Had at Any Time – No matter what instrument you play, you are always welcome to use the equipment of practice rooms at the school.

This school has nice facilities. Everything is in top shape. Really nice.

Just What I Imagined – I'm a vocal/vocal performance major. Classes are just what i expected. You get to do everything they list in the brochures, pamphlets, etc. There's nothing there that doesn't have to do with music or my program. Very interesting and i love it. The work is not too too overwhelming; just do your absolute best and you'll get what you came for.

Mad Friendly – everyone there is generally extremely nice and close its a really small school
Recent Alumnus 2012-06-26T18:39:43Z
The class scheduling was pretty flexible but it really depended on what you were doing with yourself like if you had a music internship sometimes it was really hard to work around your schedule and make sure your work was done while still enjoying yourself in L.A theres a lot of distractions and opportunities here and its all about timing
Sorry, there are no reviews.
