On January 17, guitarist Mark Lettieri visited Musicians Institute for a lively clinic, full of advice, personal stories, tips, and of course, performance. Lettieri is a GRAMMY winning guitarist, composer, producer and instructor who creates acclaimed guitar-based instrumental music as a member of band Snarky Puppy and The Fearless Flyers.

Every quarter at MI, our Artist & Career Services collaborates with artists throughout the industry to come visit for our special guest clinics and open counseling sessions. This allows MI students to interact firsthand with industry professionals that they might not otherwise have opportunities to meet. These clinics are mostly accompanied with a Q&A and interactive jam sessions, so students can play with the best.

MI takes pride is bringing the industry right onto our Hollywood campus. Thank you, Mark, for visiting and spending that time here with us at the concert hall!



After his guitar clinic for our students, Mark opened up about the importance of studying at a music school like Musicians Institute and its benefits to your career. Check the video below to hear his answer:
