Guitar Cloud Symposium (GCS)™ is an online weekend guitar workshop conceived by Jennifer Batten, one of the early graduates of Musicians Institute (MI). Jennifer performed with Michael Jackson for ten years and British Guitar icon Jeff Beck for three years, with decades of global touring experience. Through her versatility, creativity, and innovation, Jennifer continues to push the boundaries in performance and education.

GCS was inspired by a weekend Musicians Institute symposium that Batten attended (which resulted in her eventual application to enter the school).  In 2016, she toured the United States presenting her “Self Empowerment for the Modern Musician” seminar, which was jam-packed with content she wished SHE had been taught in music school and wants all musicians to know.  

Guitar Cloud Symposium is an extension of that seminar, vastly expanded by a wealth of knowledge & creative contributions from some of her favorite guitar players on the scene today.  Each edition is a smorgasbord of techniques, styles, wisdom, and fun!  Our instructors include Jennifer Batten, Nili Brosh, Vicki Genfan, Jude Gold, Daniele Gottardo, Gretchen Menn, and Angela Petrilli, all offering insights gained from their personal experiences (onstage and in-studio) as well as musical subjects they're  passionate about.
