How many campers and staff do you have each session?
Why should we trust you – we just found you on the internet?
Musicians Institute was established as a guitar school, Guitar Institute of Technology, in 1977, and its history and legacy in music continues to be proven and respected. As years passed, GIT became Musicians Institute after adding more instrument performance programs, bringing in students with a very diverse skillset and goals.
Today, MI boasts programs in everything from music production to composition, and our alumni can be counted amongst some of the most well known, and rising stars, in the music world. Our Academy program is designed to give students the chance to get a taste of what a future career in music holds.
