Musicians Institute says

The Guitar Institute of Technology opened its doors to full-time students in February of 1977, laying the foundation of Musicians Institute. Based on the educational philosophy of guitarist Howard Roberts, GIT was co-founded and managed by Los Angeles music businessman Pat Hicks. The three original instructors-Joe Diorio, Ron Eschete, and Don Mock-ventured into unexplored territory as they worked to turn Howard's vision of an intensive, contemporary, vocational guitar program into a practical reality.
