Wow, that is so cool you got to go to this acadamy, I've been trying for awhile, been to his master class in PA a few years ago and met him with my "Naked" Pass after his concert in Delaware in 2012, and you're right, he is just such a nice guy, very giving and approachable, and like you, even at my age, kinda got the "girl" anticipation for a few moments so don't feel bad, lol. I'm so glad someone as articulate as you got to live out my dream and was able to share it with all of us, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for giving me this wonderful insite into the wonderment and sureal life of the great Steve Vai and his whole hearted life long fans. Rock on Kyle!
(p.s. I think my wife went to school with your father, her name is Pamela, from Marple Newtown)
