Steve Vai and Berkleemusic Correction – Specially dedicated live chat session with Steve Vai

Back on November 30, I ran an article about The Steve Vai Guitar Techniques online course with Berkleemusic, however that article contained an error.

In the original article I incorrectly wrote that all of the material from Steve Vai was pre-recorded – but that is not the case.

Students taking the course will have access to a specially dedicated live chat session with Steve Vai himself!

Between the advanced Berkleemusic online learning platform, interactive tests and quizzes, as well as audio recognition tools, the course amasses to an experience far beyond the impression I gave of it being just a pre-recorded series of videos.

“It’s based on my music, my approach to the guitar, and in it I discuss my experiences in the music business”, Steve Vai said in a video about the course.

He went on to say, “I show you a lot about my approach to the instrument, but really everything I do is an incentive to inspire you to play the instrument, love the instrument, enjoy the instrument, and find your own voice”.

“It’s really a unique, quite revolutionary concept. I’m very thrilled to be a part of it. Check it out, hope to see you there”, he concluded.

It’s not often you get the opportunity to be taught by a Grammy award-winning guitar virtuoso with career sales of over 15 million records – hopefully Steve Vai and Berkleemusic are starting a trend that will continue and expand.
