I saw an advertisement for the Musician's Institute on the back of a bus today so that stirred up my curiosity. Would you pay $81,000.00 to go to Musician's Institute? LOL! I'm thinking that even this school has become a business like anything else... a car dealership that wants your business... a mattress store... etc. http://mi.edu/admissions-financial-aid/tution-fees/ Real musicians are self-taught. They learn by ear. It's in their blood.
