Whether a master player, beginner, or anywhere in between — or just an enthusiastic fan — Vai Academy 6.0 offers a packed schedule of insightful and fun experiences, workshops and once-in-a-lifetime performances. The environment is non-competitive and is strictly about immersing those who attend in the joy of music and picturesque surroundings.

Vai elaborates on the "Finding Your Note" theme for Vai Academy 6.0: "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.'"

Vai and Dreamcatcher Events respectfully ask all participants to be fully vaccinated or tested for COVID before attending.

On January 27, 2022, Vai will begin his "Inviolate" world tour at House of Blues in Las Vegas. The excursion will include performances in 54 tour markets, with the final show planned for April 2, 2022 at The Theatre at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles. Vai will be joined by his long-tenured ensemble members Dave Weiner (guitar / keys), Philip Bynoe (bass) and Jeremy Colson (drums).
