AMC says more panels may be coming down the pipes, which is awesome. You are encouraged to bring an instrument if you would like, but it’s not a requirement. It would be really awesome if this expanded to include electronic music as I know many people who struggle with software. This is such an awesome opportunity to see how your favorite local musicians work and have them teach you at the same time.
