Hi, I am Ricky Di Giacomo. I am 17 years old and currently a Junior in High School. Like many of you, music is my life, my passion, and my love. I strive everyday to become better at what I do. I produce as well as DJ. I started DJing when I was about 13 and really getting into Producing when I was about 15. Since i'm a Junior there has been a lot of talk about College . . . I always have planned to go to MI (Musicians Institute) in Los Angeles, California. Although it is pretty spendy, I've heard really good reviews from it. They also have 24/7 access to their recording studio (Which I am most looking forward to). I am NOT a beginner so I do not plan to go to the college and have people try and "teach" me how to be a Audio Engineer. There are things that I would love to LEARN but I do NOT want to be babied. For how young I am I think my skills are pretty great in the fields of music with both Producing and DJing. I just wanted some input on what you guys think about Colleges. I am open to any college in the U.S.
