Legendary guitarist Uli Jon Roth (ex-SCORPIONS) will bring his Sky Academy seminar to Los Angeles/Orange County for the fourth straight year in June. The aim is to enable students to get to a higher level of playing ability, overall musical awareness and inspiration.Sky Academy was conceived by Uli to provide knowledge and inspiration to those who take guitar playing seriously and to help them reach a new plateau. The seminars are designed to open musicians' eyes to new possibilities and to trigger an awakening of the student's full potential and talent. Uli's teaching aims to help unlock the full talent and potential of each player by drawing on his unique insights into the deeper mysteries of the craft. Comments Uli Jon Roth: "It has always been one of my talents to spot the talent of others and to help make it grow by pointing out certain things which are apparent to me, but not necessarily to the eyes and ears of the student. "My own journey through music and life has revealed to me a way of approaching the instrument and music in such a fashion that maximum progress can be achieved in the shortest amount of time. I don't know whether I have stumbled upon a secret here, or rather just a series of interactive laws, but whatever it is — it sure works, and it's about time that I share some of that knowledge with the younger generations." One of the highlights of Uli's Sky Academy is the Sky Academy Concert. This year Uli will focus on celebrating the music of Jimi Hendrix. Los Angeles / Orange County
