Guitar Center, the nation's leading music instrument retailer, today announced "GC Sessions" -- a new kind of educational forum. The free event takes place Thursday, April 26th at Manhattan's Guitar Center located at 25 West 14th Street from 6-9PM. Geared towards promoting players with deep passion and commitment to the craft, this edition of "GC Sessions" seeks to educate, inspire and conserve the tradition and art and hip-hop.
This music education based initiative featuring informative, provocative panel discussions and hands-on tutorials, GC Sessions serves as an incubator for musicians and provides them an opportunity to network with their peers and gain insight and knowledge from their heroes in a comfortable and intimate setting. The goal is to help musicians further their musical aspirations and provide tools for career growth.
"We're very proud of "Sessions" as it is a perfect example of what we can do to go beyond the store and aid and teach musicians," said Dustin Hinz, Manager of Event Marketing and Promotions for Guitar Center, "By connecting some of the most influential artists in hip-hop with up-an-coming musicians, hopefully we can play a part in fostering a new generation of talent."
