From June 23rd – 27th, Steve Vai and a few of his friends will hold the inaugural Vai Academy Song Evolution Camp at the Gideon Putnam Resort in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.
The Vai Academy will focus on all facets of what it takes to bring a song out into the world, which includes not just writing and recording, but other aspects such as mixing, mastering, copyrighting and marketing.
“I want everybody to learn how a song evolves and moreover how a career in music evolves,” Vai says. “You’re going to have fun, and you’re going to leave knowing how to do this professionally. This is the entire manual for being an independent musician condensed into three days.”
Joining Vai will be Vernon Reid of Living Colour, Jeff “Skunk” Baxter (Steely Dan, the Doobie Brothers) and Guthrie Govan (Asia), all of whom will conduct master classes.
Registration is limited to 150 guests. Visit the Academy’s website for more.
