MI has provided me all the tools I'veMusic - Performance
MI has provided me all the tools I've used since being in the real working world, from teaching to knowing how to be prepared for gigs. If I had to start over, I would've hustled a little harder immediately after graduation. My advice for H.S. or upperclassmen is to know what you want and go after it.

Question
I attended from 2015 to 2017.AverageMusic - Performance
I attended from 2015 to 2017. Overall a great experience for wanting to learn more about the techniques, reading, and performing of my instrument and general music knowledge as well. Plenty of opportunities to network with others, get experience performing, and see how the "real world" works by attending gigs outside of school.

There are plenty of other schools out there to attend instead, but I did enjoy MI for what it offered. No one has asked me about a degree--never mind where it's from--in the real working world.

two things to keep in mind:

1. for=profit institution, meaning if shareholders are happy, then ideally the school is happy.2. Employment/compensation in field is not guaranteed. That's on you.

Question
My experience with Musicians Institute was pretty muchMusic - Performance
My experience with Musicians Institute was pretty much the exact opposite of most reviews from students/alumni. I struggled heavily when it came to my studies, and found that most teachers and students wanted nothing to do with you if you weren't already at a certain level on your instrument. The people there really know how to make someone feel stupid when someone is inexperienced or trying to learn something new. I felt very discouraged being there, and found it to be a very cliquish and cold environment. Impossible to make friends or any type of connections. I'm currently stuck in non-music related day job and have struggled to get gigs due to the lack of help and guidance I needed. It seems like administrators only want to hear positive stories about graduates who succeed after MI, and have no concern with those who are struggling. Forget about any type of career assistance or job placement; anyone who receives assistance is someone who can make the school look good and attract new students.
