Steve Vai elaborates on the “Finding Your Note” theme for Vai Academy 6.0 sharing, “Anybody that expresses themself on an instrument has a choice of learning what they hear and trying to reproduce it, or listening deeply to their unique musical creativity voice … their ‘note.’  At Vai Academy 6.0, we will be looking into both of these kinds of expressions, but giving great emphasis on ‘finding your note.'” 
Steve Vai and Dreamcatcher Events respectfully ask all participants to be fully vaccinated or tested for COVID before attending.
