Jason Mraz has won the hearts of many with his crooning, but Mr. A to Z briefly wondered whether or not the music was right for him after attending New York's American Musical and Dramatic Academy, also known as AMDA. The "I'm Yours" singer studied musical theater at the prestigious school, but soon realized he wasn't getting the most out of his education. "We called it '
SCAMDA,' because it really didn't do any good for any of us," Mraz told a Brandeis University paper. "Except it did get us to New York, where we experimented with a lot of drugs and sex, which we don't need to tell the young children." After a year training his tenor range, Mraz left the school. He then focused his attention on songwriting and took up the guitar, which was clearly "The Remedy" for his music blues.
