4 College Senior

Student Body: If it weren't for the amazing people I've met there I wouldn't think it was a worthwhile experience. It's been great soaking in all kinds of different information on music through the student alone. I've learned as much from them as I have the teachers and they're plenty of fun!

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love how much this school has challenged me how much it's helped me become a better player. Being able to perform in front of people everyday and learn from amazing teachers/students has been incredible.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: The student affairs office is always a good place for me to go if I have questions for them-always helpful. There are a decent amount of events at the school, but I definitely wish there were more. The library is a brilliant place for me to get things done and get some equipment that I need to use here and there. I do think the campus could use a good makeover as well.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: The library has plenty of computers and there has always been plenty available when I needed one. Printing and network reliability is great as well. Most of the computers do need a few minor updates for some of the applications though.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I haven't had to worry about transferring credits. The classes are great but some of the curriculums could use some work/revision. I do think that there is a lot of information that is crammed into a small period of time as well which can be frustrating.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Pretty expensive school but I've been able to get everything figured out through Financial Aid. The Financial Aid office has always been extremely helpful though.

College Senior

Career Services: I haven't checked out the Career Services center enough to give a fair review on them. They've been good from what I hear though.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: I have improved tremendously since I started attending the Musicians Institute. The facilities are great and so is the location, but the real kicker is the fact that we have an immense amount of spectacular teachers, learning opportunities and stellar students/peers.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: 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.

Academic Flexibility: 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!

Campus Resources: 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!

Campus Resources: 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.

Academic Flexibility: 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.

2 College Junior

Academic Experience: i love my classes but they do not make is easy for students in access to equipment needed to complete there studies

College Senior

Academic Experience: 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.

College Senior

Overall Experience: 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.

2 College Senior

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.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Wireless in every building is nice. Classrooms could use more outlets. printing at 10 cents a page sucks.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: 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.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: The availability of practice rooms 24 hours/day is great. The night time shuttle only goes 2 miles and I live farther than that.

4 College Junior

Career Services: 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.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: 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.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: 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.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: 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.
