In the pursuit of excellence, Patrick Ki traveled to both the East Coast and West Coast, becoming one of the first musicians to be honored with degrees from two of the nation's finest guitar schools.
The sheer scope of Patrick's achievements is outstanding. In addition to performing extensively across the country in concerts and music festivals, Ki has contributed to numerous film and television soundtracks.
